Advisory Service Agreement - (DCHK01)
Investment Advisory Agreement
The undersigned, , [hereinafter “Client”] hereby appoints Orcello, LLC d/b/a 0SPX AutoTrades [hereinafter “Advisor”] to act as investment advisor for, and to manage the assets of Client’s account(s) [hereinafter “Account”] in accordance with the following terms and conditions of this agreement [hereinafter “Agreement”].
Advisor is to invest and reinvest the securities, cash and/or other investments held in the Account and engage in such transactions on the Client’s behalf. If the client does not grant discretionary authority, the advisor will obtain the client’s prior oral or written approval for all transactions. Client understands that the Advisor will not have any discretionary authority with respect to the Client’s Account unless the Client has given the authority by initialing above and as detailed in Section 2 below.
In connection with the advisory services being provided to the Client, Advisor is entitled to rely on the financial information and other information provided by Client. Client agrees to provide Advisor with all material information concerning the Client’s personal and financial situation, investment objective and risk tolerance. Client agrees to inform Advisor promptly of any material change in Client’s circumstances which might affect the manner in which Client’s assets should be invested and to provide Advisor with such information as it shall be reasonably requested. The Client represents and warrants that the Client has such knowledge and experience in investment matters as to be able to determine the appropriateness and suitability of the Client’s Account, including but not limited to the effect of the fee, on the Client’s potential investment returns and the risks related to the Client’s Account and investments selected for Client’s Account.
By initializing above, Client hereby grants Advisor discretionary authority to purchase, sell or otherwise acquire or dispose of stocks, bonds, options, and other securities of every name and nature and rights in respect thereof. If Client includes appropriate signed margin and/or option agreements with their brokerage account paperwork, Advisor has complete authority to sell short, on margin or otherwise, and to cover such short sales, to write, buy and sell options on securities (all of the foregoing hereinafter called “Securities”). The Advisor has complete authority over the selection, buying and selling securities, without obtaining specific client consent as long as such activity is consistent with restrictions and conditions the Client has placed on the management of Client’s assets. The Advisor also shall have complete authority to determine the amount of securities bought or sold.
Advisor shall also exercise discretion with respect to sub-advisors the Advisor engages in connection with providing investment advice. Advisor is not authorized to withdraw any money, securities or other property in the name of the Client other than the management fee. This trading authorization is continuing and shall remain in full force and effect until terminated by Client or Advisor pursuant to the provisions of Section 12 “Termination”.
For the services performed under this Agreement, the Client shall pay Advisor a fee in the amounts as provided on Schedule A attached hereto. The Client hereby authorizes Advisor to instruct the Custodian to pay solely the subscription fee from the assets in the Account if Client has opts to do so. Any commissions and expenses payable in connection with the execution of transactions for the Account and any out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Advisor with respect to the Account shall be borne by the Client externally, and, to the extent the Account’s funds are inadequate to cover subscription fees (if Client has opted to do so), by the Client.
The Client understands that they have the ability to designate the broker-dealer who will carry the Account and/or execute transactions in the Account for the Client. Advisor will not possess custody of the assets. Client will be responsible for paying all fees, if any, to Custodian. At all times, the Client shall retain sole authority over withdrawal of securities and cash from the Account except as otherwise specified in this Agreement for payment of fees and expenses. Client authorizes Advisor to instruct Custodian to send Client monthly statements showing all transactions occurring in the Account during the period covered by the statement and to provide Advisor with those statements. Arrangements will be made with Custodian to have copies of all confirmations of purchases, sales or exchanges of securities for the Account(s) and monthly or quarterly statements of all activity in the Account(s) sent to Client(s) at such address as Client(s) requests. Client is responsible for reviewing statements provided by the Custodian and confirming and reporting any discrepancies to Advisor.
Client may provide Advisor with reasonable conditions or restrictions on the management of their assets. Any conditions or restrictions must be specified by the Client in the space provided on the signature page of this Agreement.
The Advisor shall not be required to take any action or render any advice with respect to voting of proxies solicited by or with respect to, the issuers of securities in which assets of the Account may be invested from time to time. In addition, the Advisor will not be obligated to render any advice or take any action on behalf of the Client with respect to securities or other investments held in the Account, or the issuers thereof, which become the subject of any legal proceedings, including those under the Federal bankruptcy laws. Advisor will arrange for Client to receive proxy materials and other notices concerning securities in the Account.
All information and advice furnished under this Agreement by either party to the other, including respective agents and employees, shall be confidential and shall not be disclosed to third parties, except as may be required by law or as required or necessary to enable Advisor or its agents and employees to perform under this Agreement.
Advisor, its principals, employees, and agents may have, recommend or take the same or similar positions in specific investments for their own accounts, or for the accounts of other clients, as the Advisor recommends for the assets in the Account. The Client expressly acknowledges and understands that Advisor shall be free to render investment advice to others and that Advisor does not make its investment advisory services available exclusively to the Client. Nothing in this Agreement shall impose upon the Advisor any obligation to purchase or sell, or to recommend for purchase or sale, for the Account any security which the Advisor, its principals, employees or agents may purchase or sell for their own accounts or for the account of another client.
Except as otherwise provided by federal or state securities laws, the Advisor, acting in good faith, shall not be liable for any action, omission, investment recommendation/decision, or loss in connection with this Agreement including, but not limited to, the investment of assets in the Account, or the acts and/or omissions of other professionals or third party service providers recommended to the Client by the Advisor, including a broker-dealer and/or custodian. If the Account contains only a portion of the Client’s total assets, Advisor shall be responsible for those assets that the Client has designated to be the subject of the Advisor’s investment management services under this Agreement without consideration to those additional assets not so designated by the Client.
All valuations will be performed by Custodian and relied upon by Advisor. Any valuation shall not be deemed a guarantee of any kind whatsoever with respect to the value of the assets of the Account. Client will receive monthly statements from Custodian valuing the investment positions of the portfolio.
Advisor does not guarantee the future performance of the Account or any specific level of performance, the success of any investment recommendation or strategy that Advisor may recommend and/or take for the Account. Client understands that investment recommendations and/or decisions for the Account are subject to various markets, currency, economic, political and business risks, and that those investment recommendations and/or decisions will not be always profitable.
This Agreement shall be valid until terminated by Client or Advisor. This Agreement may be terminated at any time upon written notice by either party and termination will become effective at the end of the next business day. Upon termination, all prepaid, but unearned management fees will be refunded to Client. Such termination will not affect the liabilities or obligations of the parties under the Agreement arising from transactions initiated prior to such termination, including the provisions regarding arbitration, which shall survive any termination. Upon termination of this Agreement, Advisor shall be under no obligation to recommend any action with regard to, or to liquidate, the securities or other investments in the Account. Upon termination, it shall be Client’s exclusive responsibility to issue instructions in writing regarding any assets in the Account.
The death, disability or incompetency of the Client will not terminate or change the terms of the Agreement. However, Client’s executor, guardian, attorney-in-fact or other authorized representative may terminate this Agreement by giving written notice to the Advisor.
In the event of any dispute or disagreement between the parties arising out of or in relation to the interpretation, application or meaning of this Agreement, or respecting compliance with provisions, the parties will meet in good faith to attempt to resolve such dispute or disagreement. If the parties are unable to resolve such dispute or disagreement through such meetings, within 30 days after receipt of written notice (or within such time as mutually agreed to by the parties) by either party from the other that such dispute or disagreement exists, such dispute or disagreement will be submitted for arbitration to the American Arbitration Association (“Association”) at its office in Boston, Massachusetts, in accordance with the procedures rules and regulations of the Association.

If this Agreement is between the Advisor and related clients (i.e. husband and wife, etc.) the Advisor’s services shall be based upon the joint goals communicated to the Advisor. The Advisor shall be permitted to rely upon instructions from either party with respect to the disposition of the assets or the Account, unless and until such reliance is revoked in writing to the Advisor. The Advisor shall not be responsible for any claims or damages resulting from such reliance or from any change in the status of the relationship between clients.

This Agreement may not be assigned (within the meaning of the Investment Advisors Act of 1940) by either party without prior consent of the other party. The Client acknowledges and agrees that transactions that do not result in a change of actual control or management of the Advisor shall not be considered an assignment pursuant to Rule 202(a) (1) -1 under the Advisors Act.
Under the terms of this Agreement, “Commission” shall consist of all monetary obligations owed to Advisor by Client in accordance with this Agreement. However, the Annual Fee shall not be considered Commission. Client shall pay to Advisor the “Commission fee %” per month on the Return on Investment (RIO) generated in Client account for the closing month. Due date for Commission fee payment shall be the 1st day of each calendar month and shall be considered payment for the prior closing month.

In the event that any payment required to be paid by Client hereunder is not made within five (5) days of when due, Client shall pay to Advisor, in addition to such payment or other charges due hereunder, a “late fee” in the amount of one hundred and fifty DOLLARS ($150).
This Agreement shall not be changed, modified, terminated, or discharged in whole or in part, except by an instrument in writing signed by both parties hereto or their respective successors or assigns or except as set forth in Section 13 above. This Agreement constitutes the entire Agreement between the parties with regard to the investment advisory matters described herein, superseding all prior oral and written communications, proposals, negotiations, representations, understandings, courses of dealings, agreements, contracts and the like between parties.
Unless otherwise specified herein, all notices with respect to this Agreement shall be deemed duly given when received in writing by the other party or the Custodian at such address as shall be specified by notice similarly given. The Advisor may rely upon any notice, instruction or other communication from any person reasonably believed by the Advisor to be genuine and authorized.
In determining whether to open and maintain Client’s Account(s), I understand that I should carefully consider all relevant factors, such as my past and anticipated future trading and holding practices, the costs and potential benefits of paying an asset-based fee instead of per transaction fees and my investment objectives and goals. If Client intends to make no or few trades each year or to hold only mutual funds for long-term investment, this type of account may not be appropriate for the Client. The Client will periodically evaluate whether continuing to maintain the Accounts is appropriate given Client’s circumstances. Advisor reserves the right to refuse to accept or renew this Agreement in his/her sole discretion and for any reason.
Any term or provision of this Agreement which is invalid or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be effective to the extent of such invalidity or unenforceability without rendering invalid or unenforceable the remaining terms or provisions of this Agreement or affecting the validity or enforceability of any of the terms or provisions of this Agreement in any other jurisdiction.
This Agreement is made and shall be construed under the laws of the State of Florida without giving effect to principles of conflicts of law, provided that nothing herein shall be construed in any manner inconsistent with the Investment Advisors Act of 1940 or any rule or order of the Securities and Exchange Commission thereunder.
