I am very new to Zorro and have the following questions

1. In the feature page it is stated - "2 seconds for backtesting the RSI strategy example in ticks mode with 10 years M1 data. 20 seconds for walk-forward optimizing a 12-parameter multi-asset strategy on 4-hour bars with 8 years M1 data. Zorro S on 2.6 Ghz Intel i7 system". Even though it states the data is M1, but was the strategy run at M1 or H1 timeframe? Trading at M1 seems too fast. Also, which instrument was it tested on, as some instruments have about 6-8 hours of session time, whereas some others have 24/5 (FX) or 24/7 (crypto). Also, is it in a single thread or multi-thread? If multi-threads, how many threads?

2. Can I develop with Zorro S features in simulators, e.g. virtual hedging, but buy the Zorro S license when I'm ready to trade live? If not, is there a trial license for me try these features?

3. I am confused whether Zorro Trader can be used for doing live auto trading, as in the home page it says "This is not a Trading Platform...". Please clarify

4. Is Zorro S a separate install or same as Zorro?

5. Do I need to run multiple instances to trade across multiple accounts/brokers? Do I need Zorro S for it?

6. How can Zorro get live datafeed for live trading?

7. Can it be used to generate strategies?

8. Can it be run without the UI and in Linux?

9. Can Zorro handle timezone conversions from broker live feed and test data feed into a specific timezone for testing and live trading?

10. Does Zorro support C++ language, or just the VC++ IDE?

11. Does Zorro support external Windows DLLs or Linux static objects?

Thanks in advance.

1. in WFO as many as your computer has cores

2. don't think so

3. it does, there exist plugins and you can develop some on your own, even automize clicking the web

4. you can install them parallel, which makes no sense

5. yes, you need multiple instances, you need Zorro S for using Zorro S features

6. from your broker

7. generate maybe not, but develop

8. it is script based, so there is not really an "UI", Linux more likely not, since it is a Windows tool

9. depends on your skills

10. where is the difference?

11. partly yes, partly no, see 8.

About the hedge, the website https://manual.zorro-project.com/hedge.htm
states it can run in Test or Trade modes.

Can this be run in the Test mode in Zorro (instead of Zorro S)?

Hedging is the main feature I want to test out before I adopt Zorro. I don't need to live trade, but to test whether it meets my needs.

I mean, why not just try?
Download Zorro, write a simple script, set the Hedge = 5 mode and see what it does.

1 - Single core. Zorro was written in C, which is leaps and bounds faster than python, R, etc. Read this blog post:
https://financial-hacker.com/hackers-tools-zorro-and-r/

4 - Zorro S is literally the same installation. All you do is add your license key, and all of the extra features are unlocked.

5 - You can connect to multiple brokers with the same Zorro instance. See here:
https://zorro-project.com/manual/en/brokerarb.htm

7 - Yes, you can program your script to make a "strategy generator". How are your programming skills? Or did you mean Machine Learning? That's a feature too:
https://zorro-project.com/manual/en/advisor.htm

9 - Zorro's broker plugins automatically convert any broker timestamps to UTC, so it is impossible to get wrong.

10 - C++ is supported out of the box. See here:
https://zorro-project.com/manual/en/dlls.htm
https://zorro-project.com/manual/en/engine.htm

11 - I import C DLL's all the time. See here:
https://zorro-project.com/manual/en/litec_api.htm
