Please Help With Getting Started in MAS

    I am new to using MAS.  I do a fair amount of trading and was very impressed by what the home page says is possible with MAS.

    After installing the 1.6.5 release (I have a Win 2000 system) I have 4 icons on my desktop: MAS Charts, MAS Command Line, MAS Server (Files), and MAS Server (Web).

    How do I get started?  I am just a home user and don't deal with any clients.  Do I actually need a server?  I am interested in creating alerts based on combinations of indicators and especially in backtesting, if possible.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks,

      Those of you using the -w option to get data from may have run
      into this problem lately.  They appear to have changed the address for the
      http data server from to, causing data
      retrieval to fail.  The solution is simple: Just change the line in the
      mas_httprc file from:




      (Make sure the separator between "host" and the address remains a single
      tab, no spaces.)
