Free Zorro license (private traders, $30K profit limit)

Naturally, any Zorro user want to earn as much money as possible with as little effort as possible. We want the same for you, but only to a certain limit. After all, Zorro is for distributing money from the rich to the poor, not the other way around. We're also interested in promoting programming and strategy development, so we prefer that you develop your own trading systems, instead of using ours. And we do not want the market to be flooded with Zorro-based robots. For all those reasons, the free Zorro license has some restrictions in place:

You don't need to observe your account permanently for staying below the $7000 capital limit. The free Zorro version knows your account balance and opens no new positions when the limit is reached on a real money account. There is no limit on demo accounts.

Since Zorro works without online connection, the above trading restrictions are not monitored. We trust your honesty not to violate them. Otherwise you're legally required to pay a US$ 1000 penalty fee plus all profit gained by violation to oP group Germany GmbH. We'll gratefully take your money and put it into Zorro development.

Getting Zorro S

Yes, you can get it by paying money, but there are alternatives.

* A subscription license is automatically verified once per month and requires Internet connection. The verification process does not send any personal data. Verification happens only at start; a live trading session is not affected by verification or by an expired license. A permanent Zorro S license does not require online verification and can run on a PC that is not connected to the Internet.

Engine licenses

We license the Zorro engine for developing customized trading platforms or financial tools. For details about engine licensing or platform development please contact
