Gold and silver ran up a little too quickly, said Kitco's precious metal division head, Peter Hug.

In an interview on Wednesday, Hug noted that precious metals prices were over-extended after both metals had phenomenal runs. In the past weeks, gold hit a record high and silver achieved a multi-year high.

"Silver ran up to $30. Gold ran up to almost $2,100--all a little too quickly in my opinion," said Hug. "That's when the profit-taking set in. It was just a very small door with everybody trying to get out. And then as the market moved lower, people who were in at higher prices were getting margin calls in the afternoon, which just accelerated the move."
