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.
A multitude of 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.
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.
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.
Test your strategies with the world's fastest tick-level backtester (2 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 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.
always aware that the future is unknown. All strategies are risky, all backtest results
hypothetical. Invest no 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
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.
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.

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.
