An alternative way could be to separate each of the four securities into four mini-charts. In each chart, we can highlight one security by having the line for that security in a different color, while the other three securities all have the same color. We can then plot all four of the mini-charts into one big chart, so we do not lose any information. The resulting chart will look like Fig. 7. To implement this chart, we essentially create four mini-charts. However, we need to let R know that we will be doing this.

We put the former on the left side of the comma and the latter on the right side of the comma. last30, we only have data from November 18, 2013 to December 31, 2013. Volume variables. 10 Subsetting Using Dates In many financial applications, we will deal with time series data. In this particular case, the term time series is used in the more general sense as in data that can be indexed by some time interval, such as daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, or annual. As such, it is often easier to subset data using dates as these are easier to remember as they hold some tangible meaning.

To change the index, we use the rownames command. What we substitute for the dates is a sequence of numbers using the seq command. The seq command takes on three arguments, which are separated by commas. 2012). 79 Now we are ready to subset the data. We also use the subset command. 2012).
