Richard Dennis, a legendary Chicago futures trader, is back in action after a three-year retirement and is out to earn himself a piece of a $20-billion pie. Dennis' exploits in Chicago's futures trading pits earned him the title "Prince of the Pits." His mere presence on the trading floor would move a market. The 42-year-old Dennis said the dramatic rise in the value of commodity accounts lured him out of retirement.
