Thanks for the explanation! OK, so probably I can not change that. But then probable workaround might be to start installing all the dependencies manually (by downloading the Window Binaries) and then try again for the main package? Will it work?
Thanks a lot!

As Jeff said, quantmod is on CRAN and the Windows binary is available,
so the problem is likely with your local mirror.

>> I'm new to both - R as well as it's usage in trading - and I'm trying me best to learn things myself. So kindly excuse me if my question is very basic. I've installed R V2.15.1 and been trying to install TTR/Quantmod packages on my machine using the usual install.packages command, but I keep getting that these packages are not available in CRAN (which indeed is that case as I could not found them listed on the webpage.). So any idea when would they be available? Also, is the only work-around is to do away with RV2.15.1 and go for some older version or there are any other ways to go about it?
