Background[edit]

After leaving Futures Magazine in early 2013, he continued to contribute to it on a regular basis. He was intermittently listed by Futures Magazine at an editor-at-large.

Previously, he served as the Futures Magazine's managing editor.[3] He joined Futures in January of 2001.

Collins began his full-time journalism career at Futures Magazine after working in the futures markets since 1989 in various roles on the trading floors of the CBOT and CME.
