Editor | Mauldin Economics

A financial writer like no other, Jared Dillian is the editor of The Daily Dirtnap, Street Freak and The 10th Man at Mauldin Economics.

Before joining Mauldin Economics, Jared was one of Wall Street’s preeminent risk-takers. After receiving his MBA from the University of San Francisco, he got hired by Wall Street giant Lehman Brothers where he worked from 2001 to 2008—first as an index arbitrage trader and then as head of the ETF trading desk. During this time, he was routinely trading over $1 billion a day in volume.

 

After Lehman Brothers’ demise, Jared started his own newsletter, The Daily Dirtnap. The Daily Dirtnap contains a wealth of trade ideas for the self-directed, sophisticated investor and is published 225 times per year, while his Street Freak advisory translates the Dirtnap’s unique market commentary and trade ideas into specific, actionable investing advice.

If you want to dip your toes in the water on Jared’s inimitable writing style and analysis, consider reading The 10th Man, his free weekly e-letter. Just like “the tenth man” from the movie World War Z, Jared provides his contrarian views for the greater good—so you won’t fall prey to the herd mentality that so often causes mainstream investors to make the wrong decision. In all of his publications, Jared gives his subscribers an advantage only a former Wall Street trader can provide.

Jared’s experiences—the good, bad, and ugly—during his Wall Street career are laid out in his acclaimed book, Street Freak: Money and Madness at Lehman Brothers, a tell-all book that shows you what’s really going on behind closed doors on Wall Street’s trading floors. Businessweek named Street Freak the #1 General Business Book of 2011.

Is Indexing Wrecking the Markets?
On the grand scene of financial innovations, the exchange-traded fund was fairly innocuous at first. It took a good 15 years of slow realization for people to figure out how disruptive they would ultimately be.
Hackers, Bitcoins & Fleas
Right before I sat down to write this 10th Man, I read a New York Times article about how people are getting their identities stolen via their phone number. The one thing all these people had in common? They were vocal on social media about investing in bitcoin. They got hacked—and their bitcoins disappeared. In some cases, seven figures’ worth.
