[R-SIG-Finance] rule delays

This might be a bit of a hack, but what I'd recommend is this:

Create a custom signal function (see my sigAND function in my IKTrading
package) that simply takes a signal and lags it by eight days, then put
that lagged signal with your original signal in a one-cancels-other order

It's been a while since I formally wrote such code, but you can find such
an example here:

Also, look up the R/Finance 2013 presentation on quantstrat that Brian
Peterson himself did which demonstrates this functionality as well.

Hope this helps.
