In 1998, Halter moved to the US, first working as a freelance journalist from Los Angeles, before moving to New York City. Here, he worked at several German language newspapers serving the German-American community, holding positions as editor-in-chief of the New Yorker Staats-Zeitung, German World magazine and editor of the Amerika Woche.

In 2001, Halter found back to his economical roots when he started as a reporter and columnist for Wall Street Correspondents, a financial news company founded and at the time run by well-known German TV reporter Markus Koch.
