It is possible to import data from a variety of sources with one quantmod
getSymbols(). For example:
> getSymbols("AAPL", src = "yahoo") # from yahoo finance  "AAPL" > getSymbols("DEXJPUS", src = "FRED") # FX rates from FRED  "DEXJPUS"
Once you've imported the data, you can use
chartSeries() to visualize it and
even add technical indicators from the TTR
> getSymbols("AAPL")  "AAPL" > chartSeries(AAPL) > addMACD() > addBBands()
