I'd like to build a portfolio based upon modern portfolio theory and I'd like to find a tool I can use to calculate the proper mix of asset classes. Can anyone help with this? I think a good chart/graph showing stocks, bonds, oil, etc. along the efficient frontier would suffice as well.

    $\begingroup$ Systematic Investor Toolbox masks base R functions, I would recommend against it. $\endgroup$ – Kyle Balkissoon Mar 14 '15 at 1:56
  • $\begingroup$ I second Kyle's recommendation against. It has some interesting and valuable concepts, but the implementation is shaky. $\endgroup$ – Joshua Ulrich Mar 14 '15 at 23:01
