Starting to work with xts objects but can't figure out what I'm doing wrong
when converting *.csv file with a dtg variable to a *.xts object. When I'm
converting to an appropriate time object all I get are NA, so that's my
first issue.


dtg <- c("1/5/2010 2:30", "1/5/2010 10:32", "1/5/2010 12:03")

seq <- c(1,2,3)


dat <- data.frame(dtg, seq)


dat$dtg <- as.POSIXlt(dat$dtg, format = "%m/%d/%Y %H:%M")


dat.xts <- xts(x = dat[,-1], order.by = dat[,1])
