With a Tiger on the loose, you can expect any Rooster worth his comb to be moving at speed. Despite the challenging environment, the Hang Seng, our favourite Earth Rooster, will move swiftly to ensure he stays just out of Water Tiger's reach. The only exception is August, when the Tiger is enjoying an after-meal bask in the sun and clearly not moving. Which way does our Rooster choose to fly? Mostly up, encouraging the Tiger to leap higher and higher. The year should close with both animals higher than where they began, with the Water Rabbit edging out the Tiger and allowing the Rooster one last unfettered flight.
We expect a good beginning to the year to turn sour in March before returning to steady growth and peaking over the summer. A pause and a fall early into the autumn occurs before the market picks up again going into winter. Our Rooster finishes on a high note coming into the new year. Free range in the coop for the Hang Seng this year!
The Hang Seng has the cosmic assistance of the Purple Fern and the Dragon Virtue stars this year. Both are proficient in turning the worst scraps into the finest chicken scratch you'll find. Who comes to threaten our Earth Rooster? The Violent Failure star, a masked master of finding something bad in anything good; it is not here for a pheasant time. We all know what to do with those naysayers - they can’t trim your beak if you don't let them.
