My name is Jon DeWeese and I started Troy Oz Information Services, LLC as a way of combining two of my interests – software engineering & precious metals. It seemed to me that too many people were paying too much attention to what people were saying and writing about the metals, rather than looking at verifiable data. Finding the data from various sources was time-consuming and tedious for the average person, especially when there was a need for accurate historical data. The objective was to provide precious metals investors with an easy interface to all that data, all in one place. That objective was accomplished with the creation of the Precious Metals Précis du Jour plugin, which can be found in the Research section under the Daily Summaries heading.
