Modern Trader Wins Best Business Magazine Title From Niche Media Awards Committee

Apr 6 2017 | 5:09pm ET

This week our sister publication Modern Trader was named Best Business Magazine by the Niche Media Awards committee.

Building off its four-decade legacy of being the primary publication of derivatives traders, Modern Trader has rapidly become the essential full-color monthly journal for professional traders and investors since its rebrand from Futures Magazine in 2015.

 Congratulations to Modern Trader’s editorial team, led by Daniel Collins, Garrett Baldwin, Yesenia Duran, Tamarah Webb and FINalternatives' Steven Lord, as well as creative director Michael Beckett and the countless CEOs, hedge fund managers, investment analysts, fintech founders, economists, traders and financial journalists who have provided the magazine's readership with their decisive, unique, insightful and actionable market commentary and perspectives each month.

The publication has also been the proud recipient of recent industry acclaim:

In February, Modern Trader won the American Society of Magazine Editors' reader choice award for the Best Political Cover of 2016, over nominated covers from The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Variety, Time and Bloomberg Markets magazines.

The debut July 2015 issue of Modern Trader was a nominated finalist for Best Editorial (Full Issue) in the Business, Banking & Finance category by the prestigious FOLIO Awards committee. Inc. Magazine took the 2016 award.

The second issue of Modern Trader was a nominated finalist by the Magazine Industry Newsletter Award Committee for Best Feature Article for its precisely prescient August 2015 cover story Sell Stocks Now--10 Reasons to Reduce Equity Exposure .The market sold off 10% within a few days after the issue was published.
