Program Description
Monterosso Investment Management will trade your account in accordance with a proprietary trading program developed
and refined by Monterosso Investment Management: the Monterosso Short-Term Managed Futures Program. Monterosso
Investment Management believes that its trading program will generate substantially above-average returns over time,
creating an attractive opportunity for investors looking for enhancement and diversification. No assurance can be made
that this objective will be met. Past results are not necessarily indicative of future results. The risk of loss in trading
futures and options is substantial. The program has the following features:

:: Systematic
The models are generally systematic, i.e., each model's buy and sell signals are generally automated and
nondiscretionary. Only under unusual circumstances are a model’s signals preempted and discretion employed.


:: Intraday Holding Period
All positions have an intraday holding period. In other words, Monterosso Investment Management opens and closes its
positions in the same trading day and does not hold positions overnight. As a result, the turnover rate of Monterosso
Investment Management's trading program will be substantial, involving a corresponding increase in transaction costs.


:: Technical Analysis
The program will use "technical" analysis based on the theory that a study of the markets themselves provides a means of
anticipating price movements.

:: Risk Management
Effective risk management is a crucial aspect of the trading program. With the goal of limiting potential loss, Monterosso
Investment Management uses calculated risk assessment techniques. Account size, expectation, volatility of market
traded and the nature of other positions taken are all factors in deciding whether to take a position and determining the
amount of equity committed to that position. Protective stops are used to control risks. Trades are made either within the
prevailing trend or, when there is an indication of a reversal in the prevailing trend, a counter trend trade will be initiated.


Monterosso Investment Management’s trading program is systematic, i.e., non-discretionary, but Monterosso Investment
Managment will exercise its judgment and discretion in interpreting and applying its program. In addition, Monterosso
Investment Management will determine the time at which orders are to be placed with and executed by a broker, the
method by which orders are to be placed, the types of orders that are to be placed and the overall leverage for the
portfolio.


Monterosso Investment Management currently solely trades in stock index futures contracts.


Monterosso Investment Management may expand its trading program to track other global exchange traded futures
products, including, but not limited to, the following markets: grain, meat, foodstuff, fiber, lumber, metals, interest rate,
currency and energy. Monterosso Investment Management may also trade in off-exchange instruments, including forex. In

short, the markets in which Monterosso Investment Management will trade may grow and there are no restrictions on
such growth. The preference of a trade will depend upon which market Monterosso Investment Management determines
will provide the best opportunities for profit.


The decision by Monterosso Investment Management not to trade certain markets or not to make certain trades may
result at times in missing price moves and hence profits of great magnitude, which other trading managers who are willing
to trade these commodities may be able to capture. Monterosso Investment Management's approach is dependent in part
on the existence of certain technical indicators. There have been periods in the past when there were no such market
indicators, and those periods may recur.


The trading program utilized by Monterosso Investment Management is proprietary and confidential. The foregoing
description is of necessity general and is not intended to be exhaustive. Consequently, clients of Monterosso Investment
Management will not be able to determine the full details of this strategy, or whether this strategy is being followed. Also,
Monterosso Investment Management may adapt or cease trading its current strategies, or introduce new trading
strategies at any time without notice. There can be no assurance that any trading strategy of Monterosso Investment
Management will produce profitable results or will not result in losses.
