I’m Charles Mizrahi.

I currently write Alpha Investor — one of America’s fastest-growing investment publications — and have had nearly 40 years of experience as a floor trader, hedge fund manager and money manager on Wall Street.

In fact, I was once named the No. 1 trader in the nation by Barron’s.

But the story of my rise through the ranks is about more than just success — it’s about achieving the American Dream.

You see, I didn’t grow up wealthy. But I did grow up with the belief that America was the greatest nation on earth — a land of freedom and opportunity.

And right now, I’m on a mission to prove that it still is.
Although we’re constantly being told by the media that America’s best days are behind her … I know the opposite to be true.

That’s exactly why I started The Charles Mizrahi Show.

With this podcast, I want to help you — and as many other Americans as possible — rekindle the American Dream and realize that we, the people, have everything we need to get ourselves back on track.

Each episode features in-depth conversations with high-profile guests who share their own unique American Dream stories, and their views on the current state of our nation.

I’ll also share with you my passion for teaching everyday people how to prosper through America’s greatest wealth creator: the stock market.

Because I believe we all have a patriotic duty to give back to this country — which has done so much for us.

Mariann!! ,

Great show!

I really enjoy your show, after listening to a few episodes I was totally hooked, it has great direction, it deals with very instructive and interesting topics. I really love this program!

Raptors rock ,

Great podcast!

Charles attracts great guests. I implemented what I learned from Marc Ford interview instantly and already viewing attaining goals differently and more successfully.

Jim W.

I listened to the episode about investments and the Hail Mary approach. I heard that congress was afraid to pass legislation that would curtail harmful conduct of brokerages and big business. Yet There are laws such as the SOX Act of 2002( Sarbane -Oxley) which resulted from the Enron demise. What good are laws if no one is willing to enforce them?
I think the point is that any serious misgivings of large investment firms or corporate America are most often bore on the backs of the taxpayers!
I agree with your premise that their needs to be more serious consequences, however, a money driven society does not want brakes on their vehicles.
I was in sales for a part of my career and I learned quickly to know exactly how my incentive program is designed. Some one , especially an eager go getter salesperson will be creative for his/her benefit without remorse,
Look at the example set by our own leaders. People who supposedly represent us are more interested in their own personal gain vs, the common good!
It is unfortunately a culture gone awry!!
