February, May, August and November will be the most unsettled, with sudden drops or rises likely to take the market by surprise. For 1969 Roosters, there is a clash of the Heavenly Stem with the malign Crooked Foot Demon (曲腳煞), which is likely to lead to a year of stocks stumbling around in the dark and tripping over.
You’ll need to break out your rainy-day emergency funds, with the index likely to jump all over the place; money will go as quickly as it comes. Energy will be spent on limiting losses rather than chasing large gains. Even issues as mundane as transport around MTR interchanges will weigh on the market. Do not let your inner rooster off the leash; keep the bird in sight and act accordingly.
Earth ruling will be insufficient to prevent the downward trajectory. Spend your time making contacts and widening prospects.
Bickering and an inability to bring deals to a satisfactory conclusion will see the Index continue to fall. Some dips may be sharp - mind the gap.
Too much yin water running through the month ensures that even the presiding Earth Dragon will not be able to turn fortunes around.
The turnaround begins. The index shrugs off the politics of the day. Business sentiment slowly warms. Stock gains can be made by canny investors.
Throw back your head and cackle. Lots of yin metal adds to yang fire in the yearly chart, giving you something to work with. Cast your fortunes in gold.
First half holds steady, then a financial reverse ferret wipes out previous two months’ gains and we slide into negative territory.
Still no bonfire with the yin earth starting to blanket the yang fire. A month to pay close attention to the market as not all stocks will fall.
Largest fall for the second half. The Rooster stares down the Tai Sui; all energy countering the malevolent star leaves the home fires cooling.
The Tai Sui is off annoying non-roosters which will see the Index crow. It is the rooster love month with the Peach Blossom star kissing you.
This is as good as it gets, but only for those whose morals satisfy the stars. Expenditure could go large this month,but help from other quarters should arrive.
Lots of yin wood should keep the Hang Seng boat afloat. No high gains on the horizon, but no troubles threaten either.
Winter comes and brings much yang wood, caution is advised, but gains are there to be had. A good fat end to a lean year; our streamlined rooster is ready to fly.
