Data parser to retrieve financial information from a web site and perform calculations

Budget $30 - $250 USD
Bids 28
Average Bid $140

I'm looking for someone to create a parser that will access a financial web site, read currency prices from the web page, perform some calculations, and then display the results in a separate table (I'd like this data to be written to a local file as well). The tool _will not submit_ anything to the web site.\r\n\r\nThe technical approach to use is open. We have been researching on using Perl with some HTML parsers as well as Jsoup (Java). I've used Firefox's Greasemonkey and I think this would be the way to go due to how the web site presents its data in the web browser. Also, please see the attached screenshot (JPG).\r\n\r\nPlease contact me for more details if this is something you can undertake.
