For those still believing in gold, many analysts think that mining stocks make the good buy right now. Dan Denbow, co-portfolio manager for the USAA Precious Metals and Minerals fund, down 10.75% year to date, says large gold stocks provide value. "Last year when we saw a lot of M&A activity ... we saw the more speculative names move up and the larger names have lagged that and therefore they are looking more attractive based on valuation."

Silver prices closed up 43 cents to $28.72 while copper was flat at $4.54.
