Well, maybe. Whether it's +24 or -24 depends on what you mean by "one day
lag." I suspect you mean -24, but perhaps this will help you decide:
test <- ts(1:72, frequency = 24)
Note that the +24 moves the time base back 24 observable units (= hours)
and -24 moves it forward 24 hours. This means that the day 2 observations
are those from day 1, etc., which is usually what is wanted for lag. But
"The trouble with having an open mind is that people keep coming along and
sticking things into it."
