‘World’s best quant’ Peter Carr reveals his toolchain of R packages for his research

This looks like to be the toolchain that one of the world’s best quant uses for R;

quantmod
indexes
RTAQ
xts

Example R Packages
TTR
signalextraction

quantstrat
quantmod
lspm
PortfolioAnalytics
blotter
FinancialInstrument
PerformanceAnalytics

Do look at page 2 of this PDF. One R package he mentions a lot is blotter. Also, do note his mention of “USE AT YOUR OWN RISK”. This is quite the confidence builder on R.
