Futures magazine changes name to Modern Trader
The name change reflects the fact that its coverage has been more than the futures markets for quite some time, said editor Daniel Collins.
“It’s more than a re-branding,” said Collins in a telephone call with Talking Biz News. “We’ve always covered more. Futures doesn’t encompass all that we do.”
Collins noted that the Chicago-based magazine was originally called Commodities before changing its name to Futures.
The magazine has an estimated 50,000 subscribers and is sold at Barnes & Noble and Books-a-Million. Its primary subscribers are professional traders and active investors.
Modern Trader now includes 20 new editorial departments that have market insight and analysis, including stories about how technology is changing the way traders get information. A story in the July issue examines the ways traders and investors get their market news.
