GOLD SLIDES: The price of gold for August delivery fell $46, it biggest drop since early April, to settle at $1,588 an ounce.
BLAME BEN: Gold fell after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke gave no indication that the central bank would take immediate action to stimulate the economy.

GRAINS GAIN: Wheat jumped nearly 3 percent to $6.4175 a bushel, soybeans rose or 3 percent to $14.28 a bushel and corn rose 1.3 percent to $5.94 a bushel.
