is the first institutional-grade development suite for financial
research and serious trading
systems. Pattern detection, spectral analysis, or machine learning
functions evaluate the markets and determine buying or selling. Any imaginable trading strategy can be realized with a
small C script
or C++ program.
Python and R are also supported. Zorro offers extreme flexibility and features
otherwise not found in consumer trading software.
A multitude of markets.
supports options, futures, stocks, bonds, ETFs, CFDs, forex, and digital
coins. It can directly connect to online sources, feeds,
brokers, exchanges, and other trading platforms.
Automated trading is possible on all time frames, from
HFT tests or broker arbitrage strategies in millisecond resolution up to weekly or monthly
portfolio rotation and option combo systems.
Human and artificial intelligence.
Define a neural network architecture and apply it like a simple indicator.
Zorro can utilize R and Python libraries with thousands of machine
learning, data analysis, or charting packages.
Add human intelligence. Retrieve market sentiment data from
option chains, curve patterns, order flow, seasonal or currency strength,
blockchain parameters, news sources, or online contents.
Zorro's walk-forward optimizer needs less than 20
seconds for training an intraday
portfolio system with 12 parameters. Histograms show the
effect of any parameter on the strategy. Other
optimizer modules generate trading rules in C code or calculate factors for
optimal capital allocation. A large palette of optimization and
rules generation algorithms is at your disposal.
Test your strategies with the world's fastest tick-level backtester (4 seconds
for 10 years) in high accuracy - including
commissions, swaps, spreads, slippage, margins, interest, market hours,
and holidays. Step into details with the visual debugger. Validate results with
anchored or rolling walk forward analysis, Montecarlo
analysis, and Reality Check algorithms.
not only with tons of example scripts, but also
with 9 ready-to-run automated strategies for forex, CFDs, ETFs,
stocks, options, and Bitcoin. They allow you to already
experience a live trading system before developing your own strategies. Still, be
aware that all trading strategies are risky, all backtest results are
hypothetical, and never invest money you can't afford to lose.
All is customizable.
If Zorro's minimalistic user interface won't do, design your own. Define buttons, lists, displays, sliders, entry fields, charts,
and reports by script or with a simple spreadsheet.
Automate Zorro jobs with batch
processes. Integrate Zorro in other platforms. Control web interfaces by sending key strokes and mouse
clicks. Implement brokers or feeds with a simple DLL interface. Define
special bars - Renko, Point-and-Figure, or bars of your own design.
Verify the trading
status from anywhere with individualized online reports.
Easy-going or full-scale.
Zorro's lite-C language allows an easy approach to
strategy coding with very short and simple scripts. Learn coding with the included tutorial, and
quickly prototype, test, and deploy strategies with the integrated
enviroment and on-the-fly compiler.
Or utilize a full-scale
C++ platform such as Microsoft Visual Studio™ with
its advanced debugging
and profiling features. Zorro accepts projects as C scripts, as compiled executables,
or as C++ DLLs.
is free for private traders because its development was sponsored. We believe that all people, especially in developing countries,
should understand the financial markets and participate in their
profits. Small, but regular trading incomes for anyone take liquidity
from the financial system and inject it into the production
cycle. This can boost worldwide demand and reduce the divide between rich and poor.
Use Zorro to beat the world's financial system with its own
weapons. Understand, analyze, experiment with, and exploit the markets
with many different ideas and methods. Zorro's development is ongoing,
meanwhile funded by the user community through sponsor licenses, development
contracts, and trading returns. New versions come
out every 3-4 months.
