クラシック

The traditional prop trading evaluation model – show consistent profits and disciplined risk management on your way to a funded live account.

Introduction to the Classic Challenge

The Classic Challenge is a two-step evaluation. During the アルティメットトレーダーズ Challenge phase (first step) the trader must reach a specific profit target, over a minimum of three trading days, without getting drawn down below the maximum daily and all-time limit. During the Verification phase (second step) the trader must partially replicate the success of the first phase, by reaching at least half the profit under the same constraints. In other words, you ‘verify’ that your trading success was legitimate.

Classic Challenge Evaluation Process

The Classic Challenge is the stepping stone between you and a funded live account. After successful completion of the evaluation process, you will be awarded an Ultimate Traders account, funded with the same size capital.

PHASE 1

This is the first step of the Evaluation Process. Meet the challenge to proceed to the Verification stage.

Choose the Best Funding Model

The 2-phase Classic Challenge is not the only route to a funded account. We also provide traders the option of a 1-phase evaluation known as the Speedy Challenge. The rules contain many overlaps but also some differences. We leave it to you to determine which best suits your trading profile.

*All prices shown exclude VAT. VAT will be added upon checkout for clients from the EU and the UK only.

If beneficial to your trading style, you can choose to include our bundle of trading add-ons at the stage of purchasing your challenge. Each add-on is also available individually:

  • No Stop-Loss – Removing the mandatory stop-loss requirement 
  • Weekend Holdings – The ability to hold trades over the weekend (this will not affect leverage)
  • 90/10 Split – An increase to 90/10 gains split throughout the entire funded account stage

Classic Challenge Trading Rules

In phase-1, you aim for a 10% profit target whilst respecting the stated loss limit. In phase-2, you repeat the process but aim for 5%. These same 取引ルール will also apply to the Ultimate Traders live account, with the exception of the profit target and minimum trading days, which will no longer apply.

Minimum 3
Trading Days

At least one position must be opened on at least 3 separate days to qualify. This applies to both the Challenge (first) phase and the Verification (second) phase. This is no longer required once progressing to the funded Ultimate Trader account.

6% Max Daily Drawdown

Every 24-hour period your equity (balance + floating P&L) will be ‘recorded’ and your loss during the next 24-hour period should not exceed 6% of this recorded value.

12% Max
All-Time Loss

The max loss limit is calculated just once, based on your account size, and trails up until it equals the initial account balance, after which it remains permanently fixed there.

10% / 5% Profit Target

A 10% profit target must be achieved during the first step. If you register for a $100,000 size account, as a first step, you aim to trade this into a $110,000+ account. This profit target halves to just 5% for the second step. There is no fixed time limit in which you must achieve this.

Max Lots At Risk

Traders are allowed to have a maximum number of open lots equal to 1/10,000 the size of the account at risk. For $100K that means 10 lots. Positions in profit are not considered at risk and those lots are returned to the initial allocation.

Weekend Trading and Stop-Loss

All trades are required to open with a stop-loss in place and close before the weekend. By default, we will close any positions failing to do so. However, traders who wish to trade without these restrictions may do so for a 10% premium on their selected plan.

The Classic Challenge is one of two methods of evaluation that Ultimate Traders uses to identify traders suitable for funded accounts. It is based on the popular two-step evaluation model that proprietary trading firms rely on. The first step is for the trader to make profit worth 10% of the initial account capital. The second step is for the trader to make profit worth 5% of the initial account capital.

The Classic Challenge occurs in two phases rather than one and requires the trader to reach a set profit target in both phases. The account drawdown rules are more relaxed than the Speedy Challenge and therefore there is slightly more room for loss, but two phases mean consistency is required to qualify for the funded account.

The Classic Challenge is a reliable and cost-effective way to prove your trading abilities. The profit target and max drawdown limit are quite manageable and you can trade a wide variety of instruments (forex, crypto, indices, commodities) using the trading techniques you deem best.

Please note that all accounts we provide to our clients are demo accounts with fictitious funds and any trading is in a simulated environment only.
