Here is my vote for the priority of the next Zorro features:
1. Interactive Brokers API plugin
2. Historical price tick data for backtests
2. FIX API plugin
3. Plot functions for MT4 chart windows

Hi jcl. Further to the posts above and your reply to JobTick in the Starting... section:

The Broker Interface page in the manual for a long time has had this:

FXCM is rather honest (at least for a broker) and offers free historical price data, a free API, no commissions, and no minimum monthly investments. We found no other broker with this easy access.

This statement was written a (relatively, given how long Zorro has existed) long time ago, 2015 (so far) has brought changes to FXCM, other brokers have no doubt changed as well, etc. Given all that and the obvious interest here in other brokers, a couple of questions:

1) Does the Zorro team still feel the same way about FXCM vs. other brokers?

2) Given the flexibility currently provided by the MT4 plugin to go to pretty much any broker, does the Zorro team have "good feelings" laugh about any other broker(s)? (Actually, I suppose there's a U.S. vs. non-U.S. aspect to this also...)

Both Interactive Brokers and Oanda support FIX API, so with this feature I guess most requirements concerning "access to another broker but FXCM and no MT4" should be satisfied. And there are still many other brokers to which you can connect via the FIX standard, so this would surely add a lot of flexibility to Zorro.

Ok, I understand the arguments. We'll make other brokers a higher priority and will order some broker plugins for the next updates, like 1.36 or 1.38.

Thanks jcl!

Based on Sphin's comments the FIX API seems the way to go to add a number of other brokers with 1 effort? Assuming each broker's "support" of FIX API is what it should be...

Maybe you can even get some of these brokers to throw in "new client" bonuses for us?! laugh

my future request goes to Interactive Brokers API, due to its broad number of instruments including stocks, futures, cfds, interest is in stocks, as they're not included in small forex brokers,
