Ticker symbol for gold?

Post by I Shrugged » Thu May 09, 2019 6:17 pm

I've googled it, can't seem to get something that works in Yahoo Finance on my phone.
XAU doesn't work.
XAUUSD=X looked like it was going to work, but the price never changes from $1301.xx.

Anyone know?

Is it? I thought it was the current price. Matches Kitco.

On my lookup it was labeled as June 19 future price, but maybe it's a current price. Either way it should be good for my needs.
