Quantstrat and PerformanceAnalytics can deal with any time frame really.
Check the luxor demo's in the quantstrat demo dir and you will see examples.
Use the xts package for your data (as do the luxor demo's), and check
(a.o.) the functions ?to.period, ?to.minutes15 etc. for more info. Also
read to xts manual to understand its power, and why you should use xts.
