A New plot.xts

The Google Summer of Code (2012) project to extend xts has produced a very promising new plot.xts function.  Michael Weylandt, the project’s student, wrote R-SIG-Finance to request impressions, feedback, and bug reports.  The function is housed in the xtsExtra package of the xts project on R-Forge.

Please try xtsExtra::plot.xts and let us know what you think.  A sample of the eye-candy produced by the code in Michael’s email is below.  Granted, this isn’t a one-liner, but it’s certainly impressive!  Great work Michael!

If you love using my open-source work (e.g. quantmod, TTR, xts, IBrokers, microbenchmark, blotter, quantstrat, etc.), you can give back by sponsoring me on GitHub. I truly appreciate anything you’re willing and able to give!
