comment Definition of gearings, spreads and curve in RQuantLib's Floating Rate Bond function
The fixed-income code in RQuantLib needs an overhaul pretty badly... I have been asked this before, including by Lisa Ann, and I generally respond that a pure C++ solution is a good first step after which one can address the R connection issues...

comment Why C is still in use especially in area of numerical optimization (instead of C++)?

I think I disagree with this assertion. C++ projects like Boost, Eigen, Armadillo, half a dozen ML libraries, ... all do very well with C++ interfaces. And if you must, you can always use a C interface for glue (as eg offered by R and used by Rcpp).

comment Is there a piratebay for data(bases)? (here, talking about historical financial data)
+1 for mentioning both billion dollar business and some free (but generally delayed access) accessor functions. I have been standing the corresponding Perl / CPAN package Finance::YahooQuote for longer than I care to admit too :)

comment What is a commonly accepted econometric model for volume?
As an aside, GARCH models volatility (i.e. second moment), not price (first moment).
