Ian McAvity

1942 - 2016


Ian passed away suddenly at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre on the morning of Tuesday, March 15, 2016, in his 73rd year. Ian was the son of the late James and Margaret McAvity and younger brother of the late Virginia Heward. Beloved uncle of Trish (Doug Easton), Geoff (Joanne) and Jamie (Brigette) and a 'great uncle' of Willa and Geoffrey Easton, Charlotte and Brian Heward, and Cassie and Michael Heward. Ian was an avid squash player in the 60's and 70's winning championships in Canada and the United States in both 'hard ball' and doubles, and was known for his ferocious backhand, and at times, for taking a cigarette break between games, much to the dismay of his partner! He was a long time Jester in the squash community representing Canada in the US, South Africa and England. He had a career that first started in banking on Wall Street, returned to Montreal with the Bank of Montreal and at a young age, decided to move to Toronto and become an investment analyst specializing in technical research. He started his own investment market letter for subscribers in 1970 called 'Deliberations Research' and was a frequent speaker on television including 'Wall Street Week' and was a respected 'Round Table member' in Barron's. Ian travelled extensively around the world as he was often asked to speak at conferences on gold and the markets. He was a corporate director of several mining companies and was dedicated to assisting them in their growth. Ian was warm and generous, always offering to help friends in need. Ian loved golf, gardening, red wine, cats and animals in general. He enjoyed telling stories, often at dinner or over a drink to anyone willing to listen to his views on markets, politics, a fond event or experience, of which there were many. A Service of Celebration will be held at the HUMPHREY FUNERAL HOME A.W. MILES - NEWBIGGING CHAPEL, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Davisville Avenue) at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 24th with a reception to follow at the Badminton and Racquet Club at 25 St. Clair Avenue West, Toronto. If desired, in lieu of flowers, donations to the Toronto Humane Society or the Ojibway Club Historical Society would be greatly appreciated.

Karl Wagner

1917-2012


It is with great sadness, that the CSTA announces the loss of a true pioneer in technical analysis.

Karl Wagner passed at the age of 95 on Sunday May 27, 2012 following a brief illness leaving behind his partner Margueriete and many friends.

Karl was a proud WWII veteran having served with the U.S. armed forces during the American Japanese conflict at Guadalcanal. After the war Karl became self employed, eventually moving to Ontario and gravitating into financial analysis by getting involved with a startup Marketfax Info Services with the belief that a computer based data system could be used by financial professionals - the vision was too early but others eventually followed - namely Bloomberg and Thomson Reuters.

Karl went on to become Canada's first Chartered Market Technician and a president of the CSTA. He also worked closely with industry greats Don Stark and Ian Notley.

Karl was a leader and a visionary and we will all miss his refreshing tendency to call a spade a spade and ruffle a few feathers.

Thank you Karl for the memories

Donald R. Stark

In remembrance of Donald R. Stark

Donald R. Stark passed away on May 18, 2010.

Don was a pioneer in Technical Analysis.

Don started his career in the investment business as an advisor at Richardson Securities in the late 1960’s.

At that time, Don, was studying his own hand-crafted charts to select investments for his clients.

Don, the Canadian Society of Technical Analysts will remember you for your contribution to the Technical Analysis field.  


Ian Sydney Notley

(July 12, 1936 - May 28, 2008)

Ladies and gentlemen, clients, colleagues, and friends:

It is with great sadness that I must report the passing of our founder and friend, Ian Notley.

As many of you have been aware, Ian had been battling cancer for the past five years. We all knew Ian for his unflagging persistence and he was no different in his struggle against this adversary. As it was in his life and professional affairs, so too was it in this. He was fully engaged.

A brilliant capital markets analyst, Ian was a single, absolute personality and individual. The work and methods he developed over his career reflected those distinctive qualities of originality, depth, and consistency, consistently delivered.

Ian is survived by his wife, Pat and his two sons, Drew and Taryn. No formal service is planned. The family wishes a private grieving and gathering.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be sent to:

The Praxair Cancer Center at Danbury Hospital
24 Hospital Ave, Danbury, CT 06810

Respects may be paid to the Notley family:
79 Mimosa Circle, Ridgefield, CT 06877

Notley's Notes will continue its publishing deadline on schedule, led by the team in place these last twenty years, prepared and advanced for this purpose. The show must go on, for the markets surely will. Plans for corporate matters, arrangements, and new products will be forthcoming.

For now, we wish that the entire community of friends and associates who knew Ian and his work reflect together on his life and his work and the legacy he left for us to continue.

Sincerely,

Jonathan Arter
