The unexpected departure of PIMCO founder and chief investment officer Bill Gross dominated the headlines at the end of September, but PIMCO investors were far from the most disappointed folks last month. Gold prices dropped 6% in September, continuing a months-long decline from its mid-March high of $1,391.77 per ounce. Since that high, gold prices have fallen more than 13% through the third quarter. The strengthening of the U.S. dollar and improving economy also put pressure on the prices of other precious metals and commodities like oil and gas.
