The uncertainty of the markets has everyone reeling, from politicians to economists to plain old financial civilians.

Even investment bankers are stressed – and now, according to one reporter, big money Wall Streeters are now going to psychics.

Here to talk to us in today’s Mid-day Extra about the current clientele frequenting New York’s psychic dens is reporter Diana Spechler who wrote the story for New York magazine.

She says that after consulting with tons of psychics in the New York area, they’ve all experience the same trend.

In the past few years — and even more in the past few weeks – more and more men working on Wall Street have streamed into psychic dens. It seems they have a lot of questions about their future, and they want answers.
