Take a look at the packages most talked about on this list.  Some ones
that may get you started include quantmod, xts, TTR, quantstrat,
blotter, and IBrokers.

All are non-GUI, and are very powerful for various aspects of a trading system.

I realize that English isn't your native language, but if you could be
more specific in terms of _what_ you want to do once you've looked
over the details of the above packages, many on the list would be glad
to give further guidance.
