Hey all,

I've been a miner for a while and I'm looking at getting into a little bit of trading.  I'm trying to figure out how to monitor all the exchanges out there in real time.  Is there a common program that is used?  I know pretty much any site has it's own API but I honestly have no clue on how to use them.  Any help would be appreciated.

-Thanks

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin-Qt, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.

if your willing to pay I be able to whip up a java program that allows you to set prices, that will be alerted when any of the exchanges hit that price

I don't know, but it shouldn't be hard. Probably like an hour of coding and testing.

http://bitcoincharts.com/markets/
http://nyse-group.de/bitcoin-arbitrage
http://bitcoin-analytics.com/

theres a few android apps.  One of them I'm trying to remember but can't find it, I'll remember it at some random moment.

or something more like http://btc-trader.org/

theres a few others, I can't rember, but I'm getting more interested, and have really wanted to write my own trading bot for a long time, but it takes me a long time to code, since I have to get a collection of cheet sheets to look at.

Set up the same thing..

Would still be very good. Maybe it's not too hard to read just the tickers. But tickers won't help you too much for trading, since you can't see the order volume...

Btw: when you read the btc-e.com ticker: buy and sell are mixed compared to MtGox. Pay attention to  this...

My simple solution was to scrape something like bitcoincharts into a spreadsheet.  I also link to FX markets and GLBSE so I can update as required for the different exchanges and currencies I monitor.  When I was trading more frequently it also calculated my arb opportunities.  Now I just use it for real time accounting.

I'm not sure what it uses (probably just MtGox) but as far as tracking fiat exchange rates, BTCtoX is a simple way to go.
