Dylan Ratigan is an expert in active trading strategies, finance, politics and global resource technology. Training directly with billionaire Think or Swim founder Tom Sosnoff at his new Chicago-based firm Tastytrade, Ratigan learned an engaged approach to investing with clear goals and transparency of risks and costs. Strategies that debunk the myth of passive investing and help individuals control their investments, increase returns and decrease risk.
Ratigan created the CNBC hit show Fast Money in 2006 and spent 18 years as a broadcaster and executive at Bloomberg, CNBC and MSNBC. He authored the New York Times best-selling book Greedy Bastards before leaving journalism in 2012 to establish a global resource technology company, Helical Holdings. It was this venture into entrepreneurship that led him to seek the active investing expertise he is now offering to everyone.
Ratigan is also an expert in American political reform and global resource technology.
