Near Real Time Link for Excel and Commodity Pricing

EE Pros,

I have a requirement for the ability to update, in near real time, the price of several commodities dealing with Jewelry creation.  This would  include;

Spot Gold
Spot Platinum
Spot Silver

I have seen something like this with stocks and stock price updates as they are linked to an Excel WB/WS and specific cells.

Does anyone have or know of a way to get updated commodity pricing linked into an Excel Worksheet?  I could use Charles Schwab or Fidelity as a data source.

Any ideas would be very helpful.

Thank you in advance,

B.

Matt,

Thank you so much for your guidance.   I tried to set up the cells that were in the answer you directed me to but it refers to Excel 2003 and Google Sheets instead of Excel 2016.  I've attached my attempt.  I got the data to download initially (Sheet 2) but it is not "spot" and it doesn't refresh even when I click the refresh button.

Any help would be appreciated in structuring the appropriate connection.
