The price of gold bullion tumbled nearly 8 percent in heavy trade on Monday, and was on track for a record single-day loss of more $100 per ounce, as investors ditched the precious metal en masse in search for better returns in other assets.

Gold was up 0.23 percent at $1,337.73 per ounce at 4:42 p.m. EST (2042 GMT), moving off intraday lows of $1,322.

“Gold has been frog-marched $10 higher over the last hour when it became apparent that there has been an attempted coup in Turkey,” said Tai Wong, director of base and precious metals trading for BMO Capital Markets in New York.

“Gold hasn’t been a very good geopolitical hedge in recent years, though sentiment may have changed especially if it suggests instability in other governments in the region.”
