Sad News: Discord, squawk & some tools

Sad News: Discord, squawk & some tools

293419   February 23, 2023 00:53   SwingFish   SwingFish Updates  

Dear friends,

It is with a heavy heart that I share some difficult news with you all.

As many of you know, over the past nine years, We worked hard to build and maintain this Community,
and I’ve been blown away by the incredible things we’ve built together.
From over 1700 trading logs to the almost 2200 livestreams & videos, the website, code development, indicators, algorithms, and the massive trading book download section
– it’s been a labor of love, and I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished.

However, due to a long chain of unfortunate cooperate events, I’ve found myself in a difficult financial situation.
Struggling to cover the costs of rent, utilities, and other basic necessities, which has left me with very little to keep the Community running.
As covering Company costs, client transactions and legal arrangements in multiple countries has depleted my own resources,
and I’m no longer able to keep the community running in it’s current form.

Plus, my personal hardware keeps failing, which adds another level of complexity, and i start to run out of ways to ductape things together.

The burnout & pressure to keep everything running smoothly has taken a toll on my mental and physical health,
I’ve been dreaming of money, if sleep at all, and staying cooped up inside for months at a time.

My trading history shows this fact as well, and it’s been increasingly difficult to recover from losses.
as you can see in the public records, my last hickup took me almost 19 days to recover from, which is a exeptionally long time for such a small loss.

as a result i will:
– temporary shutdown off the public Discord (as moderation is at a low)
– saving expenses by turning of value added features such as mee, and nitro (as anounced 3 weeks ago)
– removing Squawk services
– disable of messaging streams to other platforms

Trading logs will still be published as usual, and i will try to get back to the streaming timeslot from before (mid asia session)

It’s been an incredible journey, and I’m humbled by the passion and commitment you’ve all shown over the years.
I hope that you can be welcomes back in the very near future, where we can continue to learn and grow together.

This was an incredibly tough decision to make, as this did fill the last 9 years of my life, and I’m heartbroken that it has come to this.

I want to take this chance to express my gratitude to each and every one of you.
Your contributions, knowledge-sharing, and respectful discussions have made this community what it is today.
It’s been an honor to facilitate this platform and watch meaningful exchanges happen.

I’m deeply grateful for the trust you’ve placed in me.

At this time, my top priority is to establish equity by any means, in order to generate the cashflow required
to pay out the funds owed by the company and me personally, down to the last cent.

With gratitude and sadness,



this is part of a number of changes, read here for other project changes/updates

Realtime Transaction Report

Realtime Transaction Report

256730   September 15, 2022 10:47   EnFoid LLC   SwingFish Updates  

Due to ongoing issues, we have created a dedicated Status page that will show the current, real-time exposure, pending transactions, and overall details.

the data displayed there may differ from other pages, as it’s created in real-time and not based on averages.

please note that pending transactions can be user or system-created but will show regardless until cleared or updated.

also noteworthy is that the totals are NOT representing the companies value, but only the contractual obligations as such.

Some huge chunks are still missing as in disputed amounts from past providers and partners,
we will add those in a later update to additional rows in just a few days.

this is to further increase transparency only and does not serve as a statement of performance.

XRP (Ripple) Suspended

214834   April 29, 2022 04:41   EnFoid LLC   SwingFish Updates  

XRP is the cryptocurrency used by the Ripple payment network. Built for enterprise and bank use,
it aims to be a fast, cost-efficient cryptocurrency for cross-border payments.

due to the ongoing SEC’s action against Ripple Labs, Inc., Coinbase stop trading in XRP by January 19, 2021.

we were still using XRP for outgoing transfers.
as of today, we can no longer fulfill payments through XRP, as we are unable to obtain more Ripple Coins until the suspension is lifted.

Other Cryptocurrencies are NOT affected by this, the SEC’s action is only against XRP!

if your XRP Transaction was canceled, please re-add it using another Cryptocurrency.

this is not the end of XRP, once the SEC has concluded the investigation with Ripple Labs, Inc.,
we will enable XRP payments, deposits, and withdrawals immediately.

EnFoid merges with EnFoid

EnFoid merges with EnFoid

230600   April 24, 2022 23:25   EnFoid LLC   SwingFish Updates  

as part of the Legislation change, the following changes are planned:

  • Q1 2022: Risk Products being moved to EnFoid Traders Inc.
  • Q2 2022: Clients move internally to EnFoid LLC.
  • Q4 2022: Striking off or releasing EnFoid Pte. Ltd.
  • Q4 2022: sale of SG Assets that are not moving to the United States.

some of those tasks are major, others are just minor changes.

most of these things will take place in the background, and not affect any operations at all.
the only exception to this is the Proprietary Trading project, as we do violate regulatory requirements doing this, Prop Trading will be halted until the change is complete, to make sure the Law is on our side.

EnFoid has no (and never had) any interest in “Selling trading accounts” as this is in direct conflict with our mission statement, as a result, we will also use this chance to re-launch Prop Trading in a new form, which will be far more selective in enrolling traders, and in exchange more lenient towards the ones that do qualify.

Please see the Official Merger information here

Task List:

  • move clients
    almost complete, some clients do require additional documentation and will be contacted individually.
  • Two of the Singaporean Staff will stay with EnFoid, working from home permanently.
  • Office Space in Wilmington
    Leases active since mid-2021, but we will need to finalize some infrastructure items.
    until then we continue operating in covid-19 fashion (from home)
  • Banking Services
    still pending (requires management to travel to the United States)
    with this completed, Arkavis Services will be discontinued.
  • Cash App & ACH direct Transfers
  • Striking off EnFoid Pte. Ltd.
    this has been posted to Singapore Gazette on 17 May 2022

Prop Update: Jurisdiction change for Proprietary Trading Accounts

Prop Update: Jurisdiction change for Proprietary Trading Accounts

138351   May 13, 2021 06:08   EnFoid LLC   SwingFish Updates  

to all Live/Funded Traders

we currently in the process of Merging accounts into our newly founded subsidiary,
as a result, the accounts will be moved to the respective Jurisdiction.

Don’t worry, no change in contracts, profit split, or rules will happen
in short, everything keeps spinning 😉

this will allow us the following:

  • Maintain the 1:100 Leverage on FX Accounts.
  • adding Crypto Trading.
  • back to offer Futures and Equities to existing Traders.
  • enable new risk profiles.
  • Remove double taxing for Traders in the European Union.
  • Solving upcoming regulatory issues in south-east Asia.

as a result of this, a few things will change sequentially on a trader by trader base:

  • we may move some Funded/Live accounts to other platforms/brokers/or Servers
    as an example:
    – ICMarkets do operate accounts on a different Juridtiction, if your account is in ASIC we will move the account and provide you New logins.
    – if your broker doesn’t accept Cooperate clients from new Jurisdictional regions, we may move you to another broker
    – those changes will be dealt case-by-case
  • Banking Information may change depending on the Jurisdiction
    if some accounts (especially wire-transfer accounts) appear inactive, that may be because of this, just contact support to get current accounts for fast transfers.
  • EnFoid accounts solely used for Trading will only available in the currencies USD, EUR, GBP, AUD, CAD, HKD, and SGD
    existing accounts in other currencies will stay as they are.
  • Outgoing profit payments will be uninterrupted.
  • PayPal, Skrill, and Crypto will not be affected.


during the transition period,
there may be some delay in creating new Trading accounts.

in case of any question, we always there for you
