A review of quantmod (0.3-17)

Doesn't handle irregular time series data

I went with quantmod over ggplot2 for the ease of adding moving averages, but hadn't realised that quantmod doesn't really handle irregular time series. I.e. the X axis isn't a true date axis. See: http://tolstoy.newcastle.edu.au/R/e13/help/11/04/12002.html

It looks like it maybe possible to work around using the undocumented/in-development code, but you'd still need to manually add the gaps into the data so you aren't really gaining anything there: http://stackoverflow.com/a/5515488/208793

However, the Delt function is really pretty handy: http://stackoverflow.com/a/7142875/208793
