How to Check Gold Prices

Gold is like stocks – its prices fluctuate on a daily basis, usually by the minute. As with every good or commodity, gold prices are determined by supply and demand. And if the metal is important to you, what you are interested in most is to stay on top of the changing prices to avoid getting ripped off. Of course, it is wont that the question of how to check gold prices has occurred to you at some point, and the best way to do that is to monitor live daily price charts either through websites or apps. Below, we outline four of the best ways, apps rather, through which you can monitor the price of gold.

Gold Price Live


Gold Price Org is a pretty big name in gold price circles. The company helps to keep you updated by the minute either through their www.goldprice.org website or their Gold Price Live app which is available for both Android and iOS.

They have history charts that you can use to check gold prices stretching as far back as 36 years, with reliable price charts that refresh by the minute. As an added bonus, the app, which is available on a free, allows you to find the best gold (and silver) deals among local precious metal dealers.

Kcast Gold Live!


Another reliable metal management app that you can use to monitor the price of gold. Available for Android, iOS and Windows platforms (and BlackBerry too if you’re still loyal), the Kcast Gold Live! app from Kitco provides a live feed of spot prices for gold (price of physical gold as opposed to exchange-traded gold), as well as silver and other precious metals.

The app also provides additional resources such as video news, market commentaries and press releases, with the option to change the currency from USD to your desired currency. It comes for free.

Gold Tracker


Gold Tracker is the brainchild of Kory Hearn software. It is great for checking gold and other precious metal prices, including platinum, silver and palladium, and supports multiple metal units such as oz., gram, kilo etc. Gold Tracker is unique in the sense that it allows you to conceal your profits in a feature the developer calls Kiosk Mode. Unlike Gold Price Live and Kitco’s app though, Gold Tracker is only available for purchase and comes at a cost of USD 2.99, while also being restricted to iOS only.



iBullion is an app that has been on the market for a while now, and it enables users to stay on top of not just gold prices, but also platinum, silver and palladium. It provides up-to-the-minute gold prices including the spot price, the high and low values of the day, as well as changes in price. The settings tab allows users to accomplish among other tasks, setting their preferred default currency and refresh currency, with multiple currency options offered. As good an app as it is, iBullion is only developed for iOS users, unfortunately, a common feature shared with Gold Tracker. You can access it for free for a limited time, following which you will need to part with a one-time fee of $4.99.

There you have it, gold diggers. If you need to check the latest gold prices, you can rely on these platforms to keep you up to snuff – right from the palm of your hand!
