UltraSmart Accreditation Plans
UltraSmart Accreditation Plans
"It is a lot easier to earn a stable income with a large account balance, than it is to turn a small balance into a fortune"
In 2021, Ultra Capital Fund changed the Prop Market globally by releasing a Program that is engineered to pass as many traders as possible safely and reliably. The first of its kind, the program allows traders to take their time to show skills in risk managed gains. With a generous drawdown that is larger than the profit target, traders can focus on building a strong growth outlook that our investors can really get behind!
What kind of trader suits the UltraSmart Plan?
Don’t be fooled by what looks like low leverage, the plan is designed to scale up account balances fast, so that you can start earning large profit amounts without using high leverage or risk.
Due to the low risk and AI Monitor, the rules for passing are tailored to be very lenient and achievable.
The UltraSmart Plan is renowned for changing the prop industry forever. This is greatly in part due to the scaling plan (formerly called progression) Carefully designed, the Plan ensures that the more consistent you trade, the more capital you get! UltraSmart’s Scaling Plan guarantees that you will earn more, over time, than with any other comparable plan. Have you done the math?
Realistic guidelines are the trademark of the unique UltraSmart Plan. To find the very best traders, we need to see you trade like you would if you had max capital –that’s not done by creating challenges that require you to trade differently just to pass. And so, we have a simple target, a generous drawdown and generous risk per trade to allow your consistency to really shine!
Compare other “low risk” challenges in the market, the UltraSmart Plan offers more leverage to profit with. Some other like for like comparisons only allow traders half the drawdown, less risk and only a fraction of the leverage! UltraSmart gives you 1:8, which might not seem a lot, but for many with low risk strategies, it is exponentially more than the 1:3-1:6 that others allow!
Not only is 65% more than other low risk plans, we help you scale faster! The UltraSmart Plan decouples Profit Share upgrades from the Capital Upgrades so you can achieve higher profits faster, and ultimately give you the power to choose how and when to pay yourself! While others lock you into targets to earn commissions, UltraSmart gives you the flexibility to run your own business!

Plan Structure: Preliminary Test Stage, Review Period, Performance Review.
Stage 1 Onboarding Stage (Launch Stage) – you will be given a short period of time of 1-2 weeks trading on an unmonitored account. This will allow you to review your trading strategy, ensure it is working as you expect and that it does not breach any rules. You cannot fail this stage or delay this stage. You can request to proceed to Stage 2 after a minimum of 7 days.
Stage 2 Review Period – After you have moved on from Stage 1, either by choice or by our discretion, you will be given your Review Account details. This account will be like your Launch Account, but it will have our AI Monitor applied and your Accreditation officially begins.
Performance Review – After completing all the milestones in the Review Period, our team will recommend you to our Investor Board who will finalize your accreditation.
It doesn’t happen often but sometimes life gets in the way, or something changes that impairs a trader from being able to commence with us. We get it! Shit Happens!
During the Stage 1 Onboarding Stage, if for any reason you change your mind, cannot trade, are uncomfortable or unhappy for any reason with our services or our execution platform, you can request to withdraw from the Accreditation Program for a FULL REFUND.
Each symbol you have open positions on, must always have less than 2% of your current account balance, at risk of loss. This 2% amount is calculated and recalculated on all orders and order modifications. The UC AI Monitor will be strictly enforcing this rule.
(Total Amount of Loss if all Stop Losses are triggered on a Symbol) < (Account Balance * 2%)
IMPORTANT: Pending Orders and Limit Orders must ALSO have Stop Losses entered on them, at the time of entering your order.
There will be no exceptions, and no refunds for failing to enforce proper risk management.
You must always have an active Stop Loss on all Orders. This includes all Market, Pending and Limit Orders.
Any order received by the server, without an active Stop Loss, will be an automatic breach of risk management and will flag your account to be disabled.
To ensure you are not caught out by this strict but very necessary risk rule, please consider the following:
• If using any Trade Copying Service or Expert Advisor, please use a “default stop loss” on your copy trades as this will safeguard a default stop loss will be placed should any connection issues or malfunctions occur.
• For automated traders, this can be done automatically by ensuring your code uses Stop Losses upon entry.
• For manual traders, you will need to ensure that you enter Stop Loss levels in the MT5 open order box where indicated. If you are worried about human error, there are many tools available for most trading platforms, that assist with Trade Execution and allow you to pre-set risk and stoploss level before opening orders.
• For Trade Copiers: please ensure your trade copier copies stop losses.
• For Duplikium FREE Accounts: Please contact Duplikium to switch on this feature to enable Stop Loss copying for all Ultra Capital Fund traders. All PAID Duplikium subscriptions are not affected by this.
Absolute Equity Drawdown of 8%.
Your account equity must not reach an amount that is equal to 8% less than your starting account balance.
Example: If your account balance is $100,000, your account will be disabled once equity reaches $92,000: $100,000 - (92% * $100,000) = $92,000
The Review Period Phase does not have a defined time but rather a minimum of 6 weeks and up to 6 months.
If a trader meets all risk requirements and can convincingly maintain profits and growth, the minimum time that a trader could be funded would be 40 days provided they made at least one trade per day for 6 weeks (6 weeks * 5 trading days per week = 30 days of active trading)
Trader’s have up to 6 months to meet all risk requirements and showcase their ability to maintain profits whilst growing the account in a fashion that convincingly shows a high probability of long-term growth.
An active trading day is:
• Any day where a new trading position is opened is counted as a single active trading day.
• Days where multiple positions are opened only count as a single active trading day.
• Positions that roll over multiple days only count as a single active trading day.
The minimum account growth required to be eligible for Investor backing is 6%.
(Starting Account Balance) + (Starting Account Balance * 6%)
Although 6% is the minimum growth that is required, it should not be considered as an isolated target or finish line.
All other requirements must be met before a trader requests their performance review for investor backing.
There is no Total Exposure Limit for this Plan.
The leverage applied to this plan is 1:8.
1:8 leverage is equal to a margin requirement of 12.5% to maintain open positions.
You can hold positions through weekends.
You can hold positions overnight.
You can hold positions through major and minor news events.
Whilst you may hold trades through all these conditions, we encourage our traders to always consider the economic environment and mitigate risk where applicable to protect capital.
All 28 derivatives/combinations of the Global Major Currencies: AUD, NZD, EUR, USD, GBP, CHF, CAD, JPY, plus Gold & Silver.
Please refer to the tables below for a comprehensive list.
*available via plan upgrade at checkout.
Risk management is a broad topic and can be defined many ways however, our investors have a more defined set of requirements when it comes to managing risk with their allocated capital. These include:
Whilst an order is open and in negative equity, if an additional order is placed on the same symbol in the same direction that is greater in size than any existing order on the same symbol, this will be flagged as a risk management breach.
Example: If you have a BUY order of 1.0 lot open on EURUSD and in negative equity (drawdown), any additional BUY order on EURUSD that is 1.01 lots or larger will be flagged as a breach for Lot Size Scaling and the account may be disabled immediately without notice. Additional orders on EURUSD are allowed but must be equal to or smaller than the smallest lot size currently open on EURUSD.
The scope for risk is very large and we will work with every trader to mitigate risks and ensure fair and equitable trading. Our investors always reserve the right to remediate and refer to the trader’s trading plan to compare.
Please ensure that you detail your strategies correctly in your application so that we can help you be aware of any concerns before you start.
The UltraSmart Funding Plan requires that a trader can convincingly maintain growth and profits to find long term traders who show patience, discipline and consistency.
Measuring a net positive outlook includes but is not limited to:
Once you have achieved all goals and milestones of your Accreditation, the PGO status will change:
You are still working towards completion.
Our AI Monitor and Team are checking the metrics and growth outlook of your trading results and will send you an email with the preliminary results and recommendations to complete your accreditation. If your results check out, we will advise you to opt in for Investor Review. Make sure you do not close out all your trades or stop trading until you are ready to opt-in for the Final Performance Review
When you opt-in for Final Performance Review, please close all open positions as this concludes your Accreditation, and we present your results to our investors for funding. This is usually completed within several working days based on workload at the time, but may take longer. Please see more information in the "Pre-Funding Process" section of our FAQ.
IMPORTANT: Do not stop trading as soon as you hit the minimum target of 6%.
The Positive Growth Outlook Milestone will show "Reviewing" when we are checking your results for ongoing growth and risk management. We will be in touch shortly after to advise the next steps.
Do not exit and close all your trades until they have run their course or you are ready to opt-in for the for Final Performance Review.
In most cases, if your results witness a pattern of good money management that has good wins and good losses, we will be happy to put you forward for the performance review by our Investor Board.
