First I want to thank you repeatedly for bringing Binary Options to Zorro!

I would appreciate if I could re-enable Spread for Binaries, because

a) many Brokers "protect" (=cheat) themselves against too successful traders with a spread
b) there are hybrid binary options (I've seen theese at dukascopy) that have spread (and a higher payout in return).

With longer term expiry times, there shouldn't be much difference with the performance, but with 60s Options, a 1Pip spread will probably make a significant difference. It would be interesting to see, how much room for broker cheating your strategy has until you fall below break even.

I have been looking forward to implement some API, and I have been recently reading the documentation of the Interactive Broker API and apparently their 'API' is an API to their trading client, the TWS (trading workstation). That is you have to execute TWS and then you can automate it with their API. Alternatively, you can run the IB gateway but still it is not the same kind of API as the API from FXCM.

jcl, what are your thoughts on this? For reference:

PS: On the other hand Oanda -was the one as dukascopy that didn't charge traders for negative equity after eurchf peg removal wasn't?- has a rest API that for what I read, would allow to make a true API to use with Zorro. I will delve into it meanwhile.

PS2: I found this documentation from ninja trader that shows that their development team implemented the interactive brokers 'api' using the TWS, that is, a third party...Is this acceptable for Zorro?

I think Economic News Awareness could be a powerfull addition. It could even add some fundamental Trading to the 100% technical approach as it is right now, or at least avoid some losses (don't open new Trades just right before NFP report or potential Rate Changes).

One great thing to insert in Zorro, could be Option trading (not binary but plain vanilla)!!

My priority vote:

1)OpenMAMA bridge for market data. This is a lightweight vendor-neutral integration layer for systems built on top of a variety of message orientated middlewares. In this way Zorro could be part of a modular modern platform and expand the visibility of Zorro.

2)FIX API for order routing and trades.

3)Drawdown alert by comparison with the backtest equity curve through the Cold Blood Index. It is very important to get a prompt feeling of when our strategies are not performing fine enought. This is probably the trader's most difficult task: when to retreat from battle.

4)Dukascopy api bridge. This broker has a free good price history, fair commisions, high speed execution and java API which could expand Zorro capabilities with the huge java universe.

Thank you. Really great Job! laugh

I go for parrondo suggestions.
I would add
5- Verifying script correctness by comparing live results with a backtest of the same period. It is a quick way to know that the strategy is well developed.

I vote for a chance to save the trading statistics over a restart of a strategy, so that its results can be continued.
