Gretchen Morgenson is a senior special writer in the investigations unit at the Journal. Following a stint on Wall Street, she began covering the financial markets in 1986 at Forbes.

She then became a staff writer at Money magazine from 1984 to 1986.

From 1986 to 1993, Gretchen was an investigative business writer and editor at Forbes magazine. She broke the story of anti-investor practices on the Nasdaq stock market that was followed by Justice Department and SEC investigations. Earlier, she oversaw several Forbes investing sections and their Washington bureau.
