Hi -----> you didn't give your name!

http://finzi.psych.upenn.edu/search.html is a useful search engine from the help 
archives of R

http://life.bio.sunysb.edu/~dstoebel/R/index.html is a mini-course in using R 
for statistical analysis

http://www.stat.tamu.edu/~ljin/Finance/stat689-R.htm may be of more use to you 
as it is called "Statistics and Finance: An Introduction" in R

Hope some of these links help you - R seems to be mostly about searching around 
on the internet (especially on that first search website) and finding your own 
way of doing things - it's so diverse (for example I am using R for climate and 
statistical analysis and producing graphs and maps).

http://www.r-project.org/posting-guide.html This link is very useful (and I 
don't mean any offence) but it shows you how to ask good questions that are 
likely to prompt useful answers from this R-help mailing list.....people on the 
mailing list are all very busy and involved in their own work, if you need help 
it can be very useful to write to this mailing list, but it pays to spend time 
writing the email using this posting guide - to get the best responses!

Good luck, it's a steep learning curve :-)
