Are you trying to get real-time spot gold prices off the web? If so then there are many places that you can get it directly without trying to capture the data yourself.

If you're trying to get it off the crawler, you can try "screen-scraping". If you're trying to get it off the datafeed, you'll find that it's encrypted and isn't available to you unless you pay for the data.

Nice code, but the data that OP wants to steal copy resides on the owner of the website's server and is not accessible.

First, you must learn to fish.

Hmmm, I thought you had to determine if there were any fish to be caught where you're going fishing... All the best fishing instructions in the world will still not catch any fish in the Dead Sea.

It doesn't do any good to know where to fish if you don't know how to fish....I myself prefer the fish market...teach a man to buy a fish and he can eat fish whenever he wants to...
