Observing trends for good fortune

Observing trends forms part and parcel of prescient in investing. Having foresight would help an investor achieve good fortune.

Whether investors are Yi aficionados or not, but want to know how to achieve good fortune in their investments, read on:

Therefore good fortune and misfortune are the images of gain and loss; remorse and humiliation are the images of sorrow and forethought.

When the trend of an action is in harmony with the laws of the universe, it leads to attainment of the desired goal; this is expressed in the appended phrase “Good fortune.”

If the trend is in opposition to the laws of the universe, it necessarily leads to loss; this is indicated by the judgment “Misfortune.”

There are also trends that do not lead directly to a goal but are rather what might be called deviations in direction.

However, if a trend has been wrong, and we feel sorrow in time, we can avoid misfortune; if we turn back, we can still achieve good fortune. This situation is indicated by the judgment “Remorse.” This judgment, then, contains an exhortation to feel sorrow and turn back.

On the other hand, a given trend may have been right at the start, but one may become indifferent and arrogant, and heedlessly slip from good fortune into misfortune. This is indicated by the judgment “Humiliation.” This judgment, then, contains an admonition to exercise forethought, to check oneself when on the wrong path and turn back to good fortune.

[Part I, Chapter 2 .3 The Great Treatise – W/B]

In these turbulent and uncertain times for investments, many an investor would be lost.

Luckily, Yi aficionados can still turn to the oracle for guidance and take the proper action(s). Good fortune.
