About: Ryan Wilday

Ryan Wilday

One of the Web's Top Crypto Analysts!

Ryan Wilday is a contributing analyst to FATRADER focusing on cryptocurrency and blockchain. A veteran cryptocurrency analyst and author of two e-books on the topic, Ryan cautioned traders during crypto's top in December 2017 and called the support level Bitcoin reached near $3000 months in advance.

Ryan has 19 years experience trading equities, futures and options, plus an MBA. He was introduced to cryptocurrencies in 2013 by a programmer friend, and began mining and trading shortly thereafter. In 2017, he became an analyst at ElliottWaveTrader.net, where he hosts a premium service on Cryptocurrency Trading.

In December 2017, when Bitcoin surpassed his $14,000 target, Ryan warned that cryptocurrencies were getting frothy and suggested that subscribers cut at least some of their holdings. When the crypto market confirmed failure of the Feb 2018 rally, he noted long-term support for Bitcoin at $4600-3000, and so far it has bottomed at $3120.

Ryan is widely followed online as a contributor to MarketWatch, Seeking Alpha, Nasdaq, and many other sites, and is a popular speaker at financial forums and conferences, such as The Money Show and Traders Expo.

He is also author of the eBooks: "The Risks & Rewards of Cryptocurrencies" and "10 Rules To Be A Successful Crypto Trader."

Bitcoin/GBTC Update

We've seen some nice impulsive follow through on the bearish counts, and until I see an impulsive structure to the upside I'll be looking down, even to $4300 BTC and $157 Ethereum, if this market wants to roll that far, though I'm a bit skeptical it will.
