Financial time series multiplication

newfts = tsobj_1 .* tsobj_2 newfts = tsobj .* array newfts = array .* tsobj

| Pair of financial time series objects. |

| A scalar value or array with the number of
rows equal to the number of dates in |

The `times` method multiplies element by element
the components of one financial time series object by the components
of the other. You can also multiply the entire object by an array.

If an object is to be multiplied by another object, both objects must have the same dates and data series names, although the order need not be the same. The order of the data series, when an object is multiplied by another object, follows the order of the first object.

`newfts = tsobj_1 .* tsobj_2` multiplies financial
time series objects element by element.

`newfts = tsobj .* array` multiplies a financial
time series object element by element by an array.

`newfts = array .* tsobj` and `newfts
= array / tsobj` multiplies an array element by element
by a financial time series object.

For financial time series objects, the `times` operation
is identical to the `mtimes` operation.
