    (P) - Proprietary Trading Results (C) - Client Trading Results

    1. Rate of Returns are calculated from the start date of each program. Usually returns are calculated based on the Annual Compounded Rate of Return method. In some cases returns have been calculated on an Non-Compounded basis. This would occur when a Manager trades based on account unit rather than on account equity.

         The Annual Compound Rate of Return ("Annual CROR") represents the compounded rate of return or each year or portion thereof presented. It is computed by applying successively respective monthly rate of return for each month beginning with the first month of that period.

         Annual Rate of Return ("Annual ROR") is calculated adding each month's return.

    2. The Worst Peak-to-Valley Drawdown ("Worst Drawdown") is defined as the greatest cumulative percentage decline in net asset value due to losses sustained by the trading program during any period in which the initial net asset value is not equaled or exceeded by a subsequent asset value.

    3. The Current Losing Streak ("Losing Streak") represents the extent of the Adviso'rs current drawdown.

    4. Sharpe Ratio is a risk adjusted ratio that rewards consistancy of returns. Traders are penalized for volatility regardless of whether it is onthe up or downside. The Sharpe Ratios is calculated using a 1% risk-free rate of return.

    5. Assets Under Management ("AUM") represents the current nominal assets traded by the Manager.

    6. Calmar Ratio represents the historical amount gained for each dollar risked. A higher number is better. Unless otherwise denoted the Calmar Ratio is calculated by dividing the 36 month Compounded ROR by the 36 month Peak to Valley Drawdown. Traders with less than 36 months of data or a negative Calmar Ratio will be indicated by N/A.

    7. Margin to Equity ("Margin") represents the average margin as a percent of a fully funded account.

    8. The Average Commission ("Avg Comm") represents the average commission rate of the composite track record. A higher or lower commission rate would increase or decrease the performance accordingly.

    9. Maximum Commission ("Max Comm") is the Maximum Round Turn Rate allowable by the Manager.

    10. Round Turns per Million ("Round Turns") represent the average number of round turns that would be generated in a $1,000,000 account.
