    Here's a neat little program that displays current precious metals quotes in your status bar (from the same folks that provide the data on the top of this page):

    I think Clyde missed that part because he himself runs KCast... I do too. But I don't turn it on unless I'm scoping out some purchases. Depressing to watch it in real time, especially if you are a long.

    Sorry for the hijack here but do you buy from people where they have up to the minute pricing? If so who are they?

    melbo Hunter Gatherer Administrator Founding Member if you are looking for a 'net deal. Locally from 'coin' deallers in the phone book and make sure to know the spot price as you walk in.

    Generally I buy 90% U.S. silver coins on eBay, where I have the current prices (displayed in my status bar) when I bid about 30 seconds before the auction ends. The seller tossed his coins out there a week ago, hoping to come out ahead. I try to buy below spot (and subtract the shipping charges from my bid before bidding). Sometimes there are some real deals out there, where you'll get silver at several dollars below spot (and the shipping has been deducted before the bid). Numismatic coins are a whole different ballgame, but I'm just buying metal.

    All news today is depressing...[LMAO]

    I run KitCast and NetDaina in another tab every day. I find Kitco runs a little behind.
