is a free authoring tool for financial research and algorithmic trading
systems - serious systems that really work. It offers advanced
statistics, analysis, signal processing, pattern detection, and deep learning
algorithms for analyzing the markets and determining the right moments
to buy or sell.
Zorro provides many features otherwise not found in consumer trading software.
Easy or full-scale - your choice.
Start with the step-by-step programming tutorial. Zorro's C-based
script offers a quick and elegant approach to strategy coding. It allows
easy handling of time series, datasets, vectors, or matrix operations.
Write, test, and deploy simple strategies in a few minutes with
a minimum of code. Use the included script editor and on-the-fly compiler
for quick tasks. Or create your systems and tools with full-scale development
platforms such as Microsoft Visual Studio™ with their advanced debugging
and profiling features. It's your choice. Zorro accepts projects as scripts
in C, or as compiled C++ DLLs.
Open architecture, fully customizable.
Zorro's user interface is admittedly minimalistic. But you can add your own. Design strategy control panels with an Excel™
spreadsheet, and define buttons, displays, sliders, entry fields, charts,
Automate routine tasks by running Zorro jobs from batch
processes. Control web platforms by sending key strokes and mouse
clicks. Implement new functions or new broker or feed connections with a simple DLL
interface. Set up account
and asset lists with any imaginable properties. Check your trading status
online with individual HTML report pages. Import or export data in binary, CSV,
or JSON formats for easy integration in other software packages.

filtering, or statistics functions. Or with neural networks from
top-end packages such as Keras™ or Tensorflow™. Zorro can
all R-based data analysis, machine learning, and charting libraries.
your strategies with the world's fastest tick-level backtester (4 seconds
for 10 years) or the step by step simulator. Verify results with Walk Forward
Analysis, Montecarlo analysis, or White's Reality Check.
Market sentiment and order flow.
Amplify your trading algorithms by adding human intelligence.
Feed Zorro with market sentiment data from a multitude of sources.
Process option chains for detecting the market's opinion about the
future price trend of the underlying. Define your own special bars -
Renko, Range, Point-and-Figure, whatever - with a simple formula.
Analyze candle patterns and price action with a self-learning algorithm. Evaluate order
flow data with a neural net for retrieving short-term price predictions.
Zorro provides easy to use indicator-like functions for all this and more.
several ready-to-run strategies for portfolios of Forex pairs, CFDs,
stocks, ETFs, and cryptocurrencies. The Z strategies are based on
published algorithms and cover a large range of markets,

are hypothetical, and never risk money that you can't afford to lose!
private traders, Zorro
is available in a free version since its initial development was paid
for. Our sponsor believed that all people, especially in developing countries,
should understand the financial markets and participate in their profits.
Small, but regular trading incomes for anyone can take liquidity out of
the financial system and inject it back into the production cycle. This
can boost demand worldwide, reduce the divide between rich and poor, and
soften the world's economical and social problems.
In this way, Zorro is meant as an incentive to
understand, analyze, experiment with, and exploit the financial markets
with many different ideas and methods. Zorro's development is ongoing, meanwhile
funded by the user community through sponsor licenses, strategy development
contracts, and trading returns. New Zorro versions with new features come
out every few months.
