This is not a
Trading
Platform.
But it can beat any.

Zorro is the first institutional-grade development tool for financial research and serious automated trading systems. Pattern detection, spectral analysis, and AI functions are used to analyze the markets and predict prices.
   Any algorithmic system can be realized with a small C script or C++ program. Python and R are also supported. Step-by-step tutorials get you started with strategy development. Zorro offers extreme flexibility and features otherwise not found in consumer trading software.

 

'Iron Condor' payoff and delta diagram
A multitude of markets.

Markets are all different, but Zorro is universal. It trades options, futures, stocks, bonds, ETFs, CFDs, forex, and digital coins. It can connect to any online source, feed, broker, or exchange. It supports all time frames from HFT latency tests in milliseconds, tick-by-tick bitcoin arbitrage, 4-hours forex cycles, up to weekly portfolio rotation or monthly option combo trading.
Linear neural network
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.
Parameter histograms
Serious optimizing.

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.
White's reality check
Serious testing.

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.
Z2 strategy balance curve
Instant strategies.

Zorro comes not only with tons of example scripts and a tutorial, but also with 9 ready-to-run strategies with excellent historical performance for forex, CFDs, ETFs, stocks, options, and Bitcoin. They allow you to already experience a live trading system before developing your own strategies.
   Be aware that all trading strategies are risky, all backtest results are hypothetical, and never invest money you can't afford to lose.
Strategy control panel
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.
Strategy development with Visual Studio™
Easy-going or full-scale.

Zorro's lite-C language allows an easy approach to strategy coding with very short scripts. Learn coding with the available tutorials, books, and courses. 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.
Why free?

Zorro is free for private traders because its development was partially sponsored. Our sponsor believes 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.
   While the markets are evolving, Zorro's development is ongoing, funded through sponsor licenses, development contracts, and trading returns. New versions come out every 3-4 months.
