	  Have you reviewed "White Paper" on "timeDate / timeSeries" 
downloadable from "www.rmetrics.org"?  I believe this should answer your 
question.  It is my understanding that "fCalendar" was designed to help 
people coordinate trading times and dates between different financial 
markets all around the world, adjusting for varying national holidays as 
well as time zone and weekend effects.  If you would like further help 
from this listserve, please submit another post.

	  Hope this helps,
	  Spencer Graves

creating these speicific dates ? At first I thought it might
be 31 days between each but that's not the case for March
( see above). Regardless of what the algorithm is, does anyone
know of an easy way to make sure the months I get back are US
business days ? In other words, push any date that is not a US
business day to the next US business day ? I  can do it by hand
but I have 10 years of data so it would be easier if there was
some R way to do it ? I've looked through the fCalendar package
but without success.
