Chinese New year 2010

Chinese New Year 2010

Today it’s the Chinese New Year. We enter the year of the tiger, to be more precise it’s the year of the metal tiger. I got this text from a Chinese friend:

Tiger years are brilliant for new and bold moves yet often bad for stock markets as they are marked by drama, upheaval and change. We should have an energetic, powerful year favoring risk and even impulsiveness. September may see a rally in the market though and overall the effect of a metal tiger is positive for business and a great year for networking.

This is said about tiger people:

Hasty tigers like you are likely to be empathic, possess great sensitivity and a profound thinker. Respect is your due and yet you can be a little quick to anger and cannot abide bureaucracy, rules and queues. Sometimes indecisiveness can be a trait of yours when under stress. Suspicion can also be a trap that tigers fall into. Tigers are naturally brave, born to power and gain stature easily. Dragons, dogs and Horses are the friends of the tiger.
