Item 8.01. Other Events.

As of February 24, 2011, Transtrend B.V. (“Transtrend”) has entered into an agreement (the “Trading Advisory Agreement”) with Equinox Fund Management, LLC (the “Managing Owner”) and Frontier Trading Company XXI, LLC (the “Trading Company”) pursuant to which assets of each of Frontier Masters Series and Frontier Diversified Series (each a “Series”) of The Frontier Fund may be allocated by the Managing Owner to the Trading Company, and Transtrend will make trading decisions with respect to the assets in accordance with its Diversified Trend Program — Enhanced Risk/USD (the “Program”) and in accordance with the provisions of the Trading Advisory Agreement. The aggregate assets allocated to the Trading Company from each Series will be less than 10% of the total assets of the relevant Series.

Previously, the Program was a “Major Reference Program” for each of the Series and for Balanced Series and Frontier Dynamic Series, meaning that the Series and Balanced Series and Frontier Dynamic Series had exposure to the Program through investments in swaps or other derivative instruments that reference a fund managed pursuant to the Program. The Program remains a “Major Reference Program” for Balanced Series and Frontier Dynamic Series, but commencing on or about March 1, 2011 all exposure to the Program for the Series will be through an allocation to the Trading Company.
