1. Create a fints object.

dates_and_times = (now:now+5)'
dates_and_times =

1.0e+05 *

7.3840
7.3840
7.3840
7.3841
7.3841
7.3841

f = fints(dates_and_times, randn(6,1))
Warning: FINTS is not recommended. Use TIMETABLE instead. For more information, see Convert Financial Time Series Objects (fints) to Timetables.
> In fints (line 169)
f =

desc:  (none)
freq:  Unknown (0)

{'dates:  (6)'}    {'times:  (6)'}    {'series1:  (6)'}
{'03-Sep-2021'}    {'12:06'      }    {[      -0.7697]}
{'04-Sep-2021'}    {'12:06'      }    {[       0.3714]}
{'05-Sep-2021'}    {'12:06'      }    {[      -0.2256]}
{'06-Sep-2021'}    {'12:06'      }    {[       1.1174]}
{'07-Sep-2021'}    {'12:06'      }    {[      -1.0891]}
{'08-Sep-2021'}    {'12:06'      }    {[       0.0326]}

2. Convert the frequency using convertto.

newfts = convertto(f,3)
Warning: FINTS is not recommended. Use TIMETABLE instead. For more information, see Convert Financial Time Series Objects (fints) to Timetables.
> In fints/convertto (line 30)

newfts =

desc:  TOMONTHLY: old_FTS
freq:  Monthly (3)

{'dates:  (1)'}    {'times:  (1)'}    {'series1:  (1)'}
{'30-Sep-2021'}    {'00:00'      }    {[       0.0326]}
