I don't believe you can process such a file directly in pstricks, where data from files is expected to be numeric only. You'll have to preprocess the file, saving it with the date replaced by an index (starting at 0), process that with pstricks, and add date labels manually.
A short script should do the preprocessing without much sweat.
