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 machine learning is used to analyze the markets and enter trades.
   Any algorithmic system can be realized with a relatively small script in C code. Python and R are also supported. Tutorials and video courses get you quickly started. 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 supports options, futures, stocks, bonds, ETFs, CFDs, forex, and digital currencies. It can connect to most online data feeds, brokers, or exchanges. It covers time frames from HFT latency tests in milliseconds, tick-by-tick bitcoin arbitrage, 4-hours forex cycles, up to weekly option selling and monthly portfolio rotation.
Linear neural network
Human and artificial intelligence.

Define a deep 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 illustrate the effect of any parameter on the strategy.
   Other optimizer modules generate trading rules in C code, apply fuzzy logic for analyzing candle patterns, train machine learning models, or calculate weights for capital allocation or mean-variance optimization. Strategies can autonomously re-optimize or re-train themselves in regular intervals for adapting to the markets.
White's reality check
Serious testing.

Test your strategies with the world's fastest tick-level backtester (3 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.
   But be always aware that the future is unknown. All strategies are risky, all backtest results hypothetical. Invest no 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 your own software and run Zorro tasks with a simple DLL interface. Control web platforms by sending key strokes and mouse clicks. Implement arbitrary broker APIs or feed protocols. Define special bars - Renko, Point-and-Figure, or bars of your own design. Verify the live trading status from anywhere with individualized online reports.
Zorro video course
Flat learning curve.

Zorro's lite-C language allows an easy approach to strategy coding with very short scripts. Tutorials, books, video courses, and the Algo Bootcamp cut your learning curve. Use the integrated environment and on-the-fly compiler for rapid development, test, and deployment of algorithmic strategies.

If you're a seasoned programmer, use your familiar C++ platform, such as Microsoft Visual Studio™ with its advanced debugging and profiling features. Zorro accepts projects as lite-C scripts, as compiled executables, or as C++ DLLs.
Why free?

Zorro is free for private traders because its development was partially donated. Our sponsor believed that all people, especially in developing countries, should learn programming and participate in the financial markets.
   Small, but regular trading incomes for anyone take liquidity out of the financial system and inject it back 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.
