Linn Software, Inc. was founded in 1989 by Dr. William E. Linn. The company's first software products were developed for Apple Macintosh® computers and received a wide following. Before the advent of internet data services, the company's products were designed to operate with cable and satellite broadcast data services. An innovative news and stock-quote cable-based service named X*PRESS, offered by an affiliate of AT&T, adopted the company's software as its standard Macintosh offering in 1990 and distributed the product for five years to tens of thousands of end-users.
In 1994, the company embarked on a major development effort to redesign its charting and market analysis software as a cross-platform product for both Windows and Macintosh computers. Designed to meet the needs of sophisticated traders and active investors, Investor/RT® was introduced in 1996. It was developed with cross-platform software engineering tools and a high performance embedded database system. Today, Investor/RT remains the only product of its kind available in native editions for both Windows and Macintosh platforms.
Investor/RT has undergone continuous enhancement and refinement for two decades, adapting to user requirements and major technology changes over that period. In 2006, Investor/RT advances in Market Profile charting and innovative real-time volume analysis lead to a business relationship with MarketDelta, LLC in Chicago. MarketDelta Charts, engineered by Linn Software, is powered by the Investor/RT charting engine and offers MarketDelta clients many advanced volume analysis features including Footprint Charts exclusive to MarketDelta editions of the software.
In 2012, MarketDelta, in collaboration with Linn Software, developed and introduced a futures trading platform known as MarketDelta Trader. Fully integrated with both MarketDelta Charts and Investor/RT, Trader provides real-time data and execution services compatible with hundreds of brokers supporting many order routing systems (OEC, CQG, Rithmic, Zen-Fire). With its integration with MarketDelta Trader, today Investor/RT is a complete charting/market analysis/trade execution solution featuring trading from the Trader DOM or trading directly from charts with automated order management of trades.
Today Linn Software products are in use by traders and active investors in more than 50 countries worldwide.
