Continuing their assault on the Mac world, package programmers for all the major houses seem to be
generating new versions that take advantage of the Mac's easy-living environment and super built-in (that
is, you don't need to buy a new board) graphics. Dow Jones has a portfolio manager in Market Manager
PLUS for the Mac and now it also has the analytical package in Market Analyzer PLUS (MA+) for the Mac.
STOCKS & COMMODITIES reviewed Market Manager PLUS Pro for the IBM-compatible (DOS) world, the
combination of the two, in an earlier issue (STOCKS & COMMODITIES, October 1990).
What we have in MA+ is an integrated package that can grab your data, graph it, apply indicators to it and
do some testing of simple trading ideas.
