is an institutional-grade development system for data analysis and algorithmic
trading. It supports pattern detection, spectral analysis,
machine learning, and multiple optimization algorithms for evaluating and
exploiting the financial markets. Any automated trading 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, even with no prior programming knowledge. Zorro offers extreme flexibility and features
otherwise not found in consumer trading software.
A tool for all markets.
are all different, but Zorro is universal. It supports options, futures, stocks, bonds, ETFs, CFDs, forex, and digital
currencies. It can connect to almost all online data feeds,
brokers, or exchanges. It covers all time frames from milliseconds to
weeks, and supports all automated trading methods from high-frequency trading to option
combos or 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 and use Keras™, TensorFlow™,
MxNet™, or thousands of other machine
learning or data analysis packages for your strategy.
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.
Optimizing is important for evaluating a strategy's
robustness and for adapting it to different markets. Zorro's walk-forward optimizer needs less than 15
seconds for training an intraday
portfolio system with 12 parameters. Histograms and contour charts illustrate the
effect of any parameter on the strategy. Various optimizer modules
can generate trading rules in C code, apply fuzzy logic, analyze candle patterns, train machine learning
models, or calculate weights for capital allocation. Strategies
autonomously re-train themselves in regular intervals.
Determining the expected performance of a strategy is no
trivial task. Zorro's tick-level backtester needs only 0.3 seconds
to process 10 years historical data in high accuracy. Specific exchanges, brokers, or
accounts can be simulated by their symbols, leverages, margins,
commissions, swaps, spreads, interest, slippage, market hours,
and holidays. Step into details with the visual debugger. Validate results with
anchored or rolling walk-forward analysis and Montecarlo
analysis. Verify the backtest accuracy by reality checks with randomized
with ready-to-run trading systems for forex, CFDs, ETFs,
stocks, options, and cryptocurrencies. They are permanently maintained
and allow you to experience a live trading system before developing your own strategies.
aware that the future is unknown and all strategies are risky. 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.
Allow 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,
