Get a clear explanation of what happened in global markets each week from a 25+ year Wall Street trader and global macro expert (me) and contributing editor Justin Ross.

It’s free, easy, and quick.

Five high-yield minutes each week.

I’m the guy who wrote Alpha Trader, the popular trading book. I’ve been trading and writing about markets since 1995. I’ve been a Managing Director, hedge fund portfolio manager, and senior risk taker at a bunch of banks on Wall Street. I made $50 million for Lehman Brothers in 2008 and you can guess how big my bonus was that year if you know much about recent financial history. And I love to write.

Get smarter, fast.

Friday Speedrun will boost your knowledge of finance and global markets and give you a clear explanation of what is going on and why. It will help you understand the stories driving markets this week and give you an inside look at what is really happening on trading floors around the world.

And it won’t be boring. I promise.

Thanks for signing up.
