	  The short answer is no:  I'm not familiar with FINmetrics, but I've 
been told that it has capabilites not (yet) available in R.  And I can't 
say anything about the compatibility (or lack thereof) of the 
capabilities that do exist.

	  Moreover, FINmetrics is a commericial product distributed by 
Insightful, and I don't know the status of what they consider 
proprietary.  I just got 12 hits from RSiteSearch("Rmetrics and 
FINmetrics"), but didn't learn much from that.  Googling for "Rmetrics 
and FINmetrics" seemed more profitable.

about portfolio optimization with S-plus and Finmetrics...I'm already
aware of the compatibility between S-plus and R languages so I was
wondering if it's the same with Rmetrics and Finmetrics.
