real-time price updates every 120 seconds from market resource data feed

I am building a precious metals coin store on top of Magento 1.202.
The application consists of 10 different metals.

I need to load the database with real-time metal prices via data feed.
the webservice is flexible, but I am having trouble deciding which procedure is more magento friendly.
The prices absolutely have to be updated every 120 seconds and viewable from the front end.
I need the quickest low-latency api/script/cron possible for this to work.

I am wondering if this is even possible without customizing every detail in the magento app.

This project is my biggest challenge yet, and if anyone has experience in this realm, you are worth your weight in gold.

Thank you in advance kind sirs.

Hi Steve,

Were you able to get this figured out. I’m in a similar situation. What source are you getting your real-time precious metal prices from? And how did you end up automating the process?

Thanks
