This app is customizable. You can change the default page refresh times from 15 minute all the way to just once every 24hrs. You can have the page play a sound every time it refreshes, and that sound reverses when the price drops so it then becomes an audio notification tool. Cool right?
If you choose to be notified by sound the sound will play reversed (backwards) when there is a silver market loss (compared to previous day), and forwards when there is a silver market gain (compared to previous day).
Hello my name is Mike Koenig and I'm a silver junkie and a programmer, that's why I created this project. I thought it would be great to create a simple hands off system that would keep people like me and you updated on the silver market.
We suggest you keep this tool open in a new tab that you are not using 24/7. If you want to be updated just once a day then choose 24 hours, just once an hour then choose 1 hour.
Make sure you choose a sound! This is important by choosing a sound you can be alerted to the markets movements without having to use your eyes, and hands. If the market moved up then the sound you chose will play normal, if the market retreated the sound will be played backwards to signify a market reversal. :)
We thought it would be cute to include a sound clip from our son Noah, if you choose the "Superman" sound then that's him talking saying he's superman, and super strong, o and he has muscles. lol. Enjoy everyone, please spread the word.
