FX people moves: Barclays Capital departures continue

David Woo, head of global FX strategy at Barclays Capital, resigned last week. Woo is something of a face in FX research – in fact, he is so highly regarded that the weeklyFiX once commissioned an article from him (Quantifying the USD-oil link). Woo joined BarCap from Citi in 2004. Before that he was at the IMF. Sources predict Woo is destined for Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
