Manhattan, NY (PRWEB) July 10, 2012
Manhattan Gold & Silver is pleased to announce a revamped design for its dynamic historical price charts for precious metals.
Data in the 5 days, 6 months, 1 year, and 5 years charts updates twice per day in accordance with the London Bullion Market Association and the London Platinum and Palladium Market, both of which set the price of precious metals twice per day (with the exception of silver, which is only set once per day). These valuations are known as the London fixing – which is regarded the world over as the most authoritative price for gold and other precious metals.
There are price charts available for all the precious metals that Manhattan Gold & Silver deals in, including:
- Historical Gold Prices
- Historical Silver Prices
- Historical Platinum Prices
- Historical Palladium
The charts record the final London fixing price for each day, stretching all the way back to 1985 for gold and silver, and 1990 for platinum and palladium. Default date ranges are provided for easy viewing. However, users can input their own date ranges to build custom historical price charts. This is an excellent way to learn about the fluctuations in precious metals prices over the last several decades.
As part of a website update, the precious metal historical price charts have all undergone design and functionality changes to make them better than ever. Changes to the charts include:
- A large, single chart featuring a tabbed layout. The older iteration displayed four smaller, separate charts to cover default date ranges, in addition to a fifth, user-generated chart. The new tabbed layout makes the charts easier to read and navigate, while also decreasing the load time for the chart page.
- Data points are now visible on the charts that display the date and precious metal price when hovered over.
In addition to these updated historical charts, users can continue their research on precious metals by utilizing the rest of the Manhattan Gold & Silver website which includes features like conversion charts, live precious metals prices, an exhaustive blog, and more tools, apps, and content.
