    Hi! Thanks for writing.

    According to the plugin FAQ, it looks like it supports almost any stock from NASDAQ OR NYSE.

    But after an internet search, it looks like gold price is what most people are calling a commodity, not a stock. And it seems like its listed in different ways as a commodity, for example as a “futures” and as 1oz. vs. 100oz. vs. other.

    I couldn’t find a ticker-symbol on NYSE or NASDAQ for gold futures.

    In other words, I haven’t been able to find a way to make the Custom Stock Widget show gold price.

    What about using another WordPress for example the gold-price plugin ( https://wordpress.org/plugins/gold-price/ ), or another similar?

    Let me know your thoughts?

    Thank you for your response. Does the Gold Price plugin only display the commodity value? Or will it also show other ticker symbols? are you familiar with any plugin that will?

    Thanks for writing back, and keeping the curiosity motivation going to dig deeper into the question!

    I looked around at some other plugins, and in doing so got to thinking. Then I looked back again at the Custom Stock Widget plugin.

    How about using this ticker symbol?
    XAUUSD=X

    So for example in the plugin configuration screen, add that symbol along with the other stock symbols, like so:
    GOOG,YHOO,AAPL,XAUUSD=X

    It does seem to display *a* gold price.

    I guess a remaining question is, is that the gold price that you want to display?

    Write back to let us know how you go?
