Widely-followed young Goldman analyst dies after losing cancer battle


Sad to report.

John Noyce, 36, a technical analyst at Goldman Sachs’s London currency trading desk whose weekly report 'The Charts That Matter Next Week' was widely followed, has died.

Bloomberg News reports that he died on June 4, according to Tom Fitzpatrick, chief technical foreign-exchange strategist and his former boss at Citigroup, who cited Noyce’s mother. No cause was given.

Noyce was described as 'Goldman’s only must-read technician' in 2011 by Zerohedge.com, a website serving the hedge fund industry.

John Charles Noyce studied accounting and finance at Exeter University in the U.K., graduating in 2000, according to a profile on the Society of Technical Analysts website. That year he was hired by Citigroup in London to work on the bank’s proprietary trading desk, handling spot foreign-exchange and interest-rate futures, and writing technically based analysis. In 2002, Noyce started producing technical research exclusively.

Goldman said in an internal email to staff that Noyce passed away following a long battle with cancer. He joined the firm in 2008 as a VP in European FICC Strategies as a Technical Analyst.
