Hi Nick,

I checked out the cluster help; however still don't know what to use.
The thing here is that I have 45 countries, each country has a time
series return for 500 weeks. So basically it is a panel data with 45
countries, and each has 500 return numbers. I want to break the 45
countries into several groups, for example 5 groups, based on their
time series return performance.

Thanks.

Best,
Xixi Lin
