I was in Hong Kong last month. While I walked in a subway station, I saw billboards advertising a “5-Elements Money Market Fund”.

“Great! More work opportunities for Chinese Metaphysics folks!” I thought.

This morning, Mr. Li Zhao Ji (李兆基), a multi-billionaire, a.k.a. “Asia Stock God”
(“亞洲股神”) talks about “5-elements theory of stock trading” (炒股五行論). For details, please check the following link (in Chinese):

For basic theory of stock trade and 5-elements, please click this link (in Chinese):

In the last few years, some well-intended folks are trashing 5-elements applications in 4P, Feng Shui and others.

While there are limits of 5-elements, they are still the cornerstone of Chinese Metaphysics.

5-elements are not just physical metal, water, wood, fire and earth.

To apply 5-elements theory in terms of qi (energy), in terms of actual physical elements or just in terms of symbols, is situation-specific. It is not easy to throw out the 5-element concept without upsetting the whole equation.

Humans and living beings are all under the influence of 5-elements. You either become an immortal or dead when 5-elements stop affecting you.

Well, time for a cup of tea (Darn! Water-element controls me again! Maybe I should draw a Kan hexagram and eat it instead.)
