AdaCore today announced the adoption of its GNAT Pro Ada Development Environment by Deep Blue Capital
(DBC), a propriety trading firm. DBC rotates teams through the world time zones at their Amsterdam-based offices to trade twenty-four hours a day, 7 days a week on all of the world’s major stock exchanges. DBC employs algorithmic trading systems developed in Ada with AdaCore’s GNAT Pro development environment; these systems gather market information and automatically send buy and sell orders with minimal human intervention. DBC, a small company with fewer than twenty employees, can operate globally because of its efficient and reliable software.
