Hello.

Does anyone know if and how I can automatically get the price of gold?

Thanks,
Andrew

What I do is enter gold bullion as being a stock with symbol AU:GOLD. After
creating a stock with name AU:GOLD, go to "details" for that stock and set
"Country/Region" to
"Australia". Each share of AU:GOLD corresponds to 0.1 ounces of gold
bullion. What AU:GOLD actually is is an Exchange Traded Fund for gold
bullion trading on the Australian stock exhange. Its share proce is quoted
in Austrialian Dollars but setting "Country/Region" to "Australia"
compensates for that. GOLD:AX's price will always be a little bit different
than the spot market price of gold but it's close enough for most practical
purposess. For instance, right now Money says that the price of GOLD:AX is
US$40.62 whereas at this moment ww.forex-markets.com is showing the bid and
ask prices for an ounce of gold as being $405.6 and $406.1, respectively.
