Making Money with Charles Payne

Charles’ childhood was his driving force behind wanting to be in the financial industry. He had two very different childhoods, he tells us about them in the episode so be sure to check it out. At 14 he told his mom he was going to work on Wall Street and at 17 she co-signed so that he could buy his first mutual fund. After four years in the Air Force Charles started his career on Wall Street at E. F. Hutton. His exceptional people skills seem to be a running theme found throughout his success. Charles loves what he does and can’t imagine retiring. You can find him weekdays on his show Making Money with Charles Payne on Fox Business.

2022…The year of going nowhere FAST!

It seems like we’re back to where we were in January. We had an all-time record high the first week of January, then we had a big correction. Rallied back up but now we’re back down to where we were corrected. It seems like we’re standing still, but meanwhile, lots of economic numbers are coming in. We just had a very negative GDP down 1.4%. I say negative when you say it in the context of what the last quarter was, which was up 6.9%. Meanwhile, earnings are good, unemployment numbers are dropping, and margins are improving.

We’re going nowhere fast. There’s been tons of volatility, but if you look at it over the last 10 months, unless you’re talking about growth or disruptive technology, the market’s been sideways. The hawks are getting more hawkish because the FED is tightening financial conditions. The bears are getting more bearish. Wall Street is a zoo!

This week’s hidden facts of finance

  • Computer-driven trading accounts for 65-70% of daily equity activity
