Hi, the snippet of code below works, but I would like to know how to feed the function merge.zoo the contents of
CADstocknames rather than having to hard code it into the merge.zoo command. I think I must be missing something simple, but I cannot for the life of me figure it out. Thanks in advance for any enlightenment offered.

library(zoo)
CADstocknames <- c("xbb.to","xsb.to","xiu.to") for(i in 1:length(CADstocknames)){
assign(CADstocknames[i], get.hist.quote(CADstocknames[i],quote = "AdjClose"))
}
mergedCAD <- merge.zoo(xbb.to,xsb.to,xiu.to, all = TRUE, retclass ="data.frame")
tail(mergedCAD)
