Our Rooster struts in on Friday, 3 February, to welcome a brand new year. Again, we attempt to plot the pattern and relative magnitude of the HSI’s monthly movements in the year ahead using a Fortune Scale. The spirits forbid us from associating ourselves with any number masquerading as a scientifically determined HSI target! So prepare for a slow start before the cocky bird spreads his wings to rule the roost!More
Our Rooster jumped a bit too early in 2005, but found his footing by the year-end. Meanwhile, the plucky chook did much better in 1993 tracking the Hang Seng Index market moves.More
In China, life successes or failures are often less attributed to human action as they are to do with the workings of mysterious earth forces known as Feng Shui.
Whether you are making an investment, arranging furniture, travelling abroad or choosing a spouse, timing and positioning in accordance with Feng Shui is crucial to achieve prosperity, health and happiness.
Our forecasts for the Hang Seng are based on the interplay of the destiny chart, or Bazi for the year, and the birth date of the Hang Seng Index (24 November, 1969), an "Earth Rooster”.
The heavenly stem of our great Earth Rooster is yin and water. He’ll love water, be aided by fire and fly far from metal.
Despite the full force of fire coming in this year, we expect the charts, both that of the Fire Rooster and our Earth Rooster, to quench that influence and a balance of all elements to be spread across the year.
While we see Fire and Metal guiding the entire chart throughout the year, Earth, Wood and Water will play more than their expected roles.
While Fire and Metal sectors dominate the top-level elements over the course of the year, we see Water and Earth doing best overall, namely transport, gaming and renewables, with good mealworms also likely for commodities, property and China plays.More
Feng Shui determines the points on the compass assigned to potential negative energies, or malevolent qi in their various guises. The usual suspects are the Tai Sui, Tsui Po, San Sha and Wu Wang: ghostly forces meandering across the fengshui firmament, so if the predictions are not in your favour, purchase a cannister of reality and breathe deep . . . you’ll be fine.More

Our Rooster prefers to feather his nest in the North while poultry returns are expected elsewhere, especially directly South and East.
