Hi Sebastien,

Adding my 2 cents, for OFX data (Oanda FX data I suppose), quantmod  
package as a utility to download those data (among others data sources)

Think there are other possibilities for this specific purpose (OFX  
data download), but for having tried quantmod myself I would recommend  
it (a very good job from Jeff Ryan) + it has some charting  
capabilities that might get you off the ground for what you want (not  
sure what it is) + it is based on XTS which is a very convenient time  
series handling package (again thank you Mr Ryan & Ulrich)
