Editor Dylan Jovine has always been a maverick. In 1995, his clients owned four stocks that were taken over so quickly, he was questioned by the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD) on suspicion of insider trading. Against the advice of council, he walked in with no lawyer and within two hours proved how he arrived at his conclusions). In 1996, at just 24 years of age, he became one of the youngest people in history to get NASD approval to launch Wall Street brokerage Lexington Capital Partners (LCP). After selling his brokerage firm, in 2003 he launched Tycoon Publishing with a mission: give individual investors the same quality research institutions get. On May 12, 2006, he predicted the coming real estate crash and bear market in an article titled “Want to Know How to Spot the Start of a Bear Market.” The company soon catered to over 500,000 individual investors from over 28 countries. After selling Tycoon, on January 15, 2018 he launched Behind the Markets to share his best ideas with independent-minded investors.

Writing for The Tycoon Report
Dylan is perhaps best known as a regular contributor to the free investment newsletter, The Tycoon Report.
On December 19th 2006, he made the first of several public warnings about the stock market to his readers.
In early 2009 he became bullish telling his readers that this would be “the greatest opportunity since the great depression.”
(This lead to an pretty bad appearance on Fox Business where he got to explain why he was bullish but was never invited back because he was terrible in front of the news camera).
In 2007, Mr. Jovine participated in the only investing contest he ever entered, coming in second place out of one hundred of the most popular investors in an AOL-sponsored investing contest.
When Dylan isn’t working on one of his many business interests, he spends time with his family. His hobbies include a passion for ancient Roman history and a love of writing.
