Fun widget/chart for live gold, oil and stock prices


I'm looking for someone who can help me code a few widgets for a website. I have some basic coding and website design experience but for this particular widget, I don't know what is involved, what is possible, how it'll be coded, etc. So your feedback on whether its possible and how it will be implemented is helpful.

There are many websites who have a live gold price widget or a live oil price widget or a live stock price widget or chart. Here are a few examples:

Gold: [url removed, login to view]

Oil: [url removed, login to view]

Stocks: [url removed, login to view] has a fairly broad database of stock prices for example:

I would like to start with a simple widget and once it is complete, move onto perhaps more complicated ones. Here's where I would like to start:

I would like a widget that combines the live gold price and the live oil price to show the ratio of the two. Here's an example:

If the live gold price is $39/gram and the live WTI crude oil price is $44/barrel, I want to make a widget that shows the live price of oil in terms of gold.

In other words, if you price the barrel of oil in gold, the live price of oil per barrel is 1.12 g of gold ($44 for barrel of oil divided by $39 for a gram of gold).

So instead of the widget showing the price of oil in dollars, I want it to show in gold.

Is this possible and how much work is involved?

If possible, I would then like to work with someone on further charts and widgets. Here is a website that shows some examples of what I want to do, but the problem with this site is that the charts are not "live" or updated automatically. The website owner manually updates them each month. I would like them updated in real time. Here's the sample site:

[url removed, login to view]

You can see that the website shows the price of many assets: stocks, commodities, real estate, etc in terms of gold instead of dollars.

I'm looking for someone who can help me replicate this but dive even a deeper. For now, let's start with the single task of displaying the live price of oil in terms of gold and then we can discuss future widgets.

I don't know where to set the budget for this project because I don't know how simple or difficult it is to implement. So any feedback on that is helpful.

Thanks for your time and I look forward to finding someone to work closely with on this fun project.

Take care!
