Subject: [R] Correlation Loops in time series

Hello, I've got the following problem.
I have to matrices each containing 200 time series.
Now I want to calculate the correlation of the first time
series of each of
the matrices.
I use the following command:
cor(mts1[,1],mts2[,1], use="complete.obs",
cor(mts1[,2],mts2[,2], use="complete.obs",
cor(mts1[,3],mts2[,3], use="complete.obs",
and so on..
I would like to repeat this for each of the 200 time series.
As it is quite
painful to change the command 200 times I wanted to ask if
there's a loop
function that can cover these series in a fast way?
Thanks in advance for your help
