Investing in Amazon.com Using Good Old Four Pillars of Destiny

It has been awhile since I have written an article and I’d like to share my thoughts today on Amazon.com and why the stock has popped. First and foremost, investing can be a tricky game which can turn into gambling. As a person who practices Chinese Metaphysics, I do not encourage gambling using whatever form or method, whether it is QMDJ, Da Liu Ren, etc… However, making predictions on investment is another matter which some of us were trained to do. Investments can also come in the form of assisting clients on deciding on whether to buy a specific product to sell, or if they should avoid venturing into a new product. When looking into stocks, the difficulty of predicting the stock movement increases as many factors is involved. Feng Shui masters are well aware that they will need to look at all of heaven, man, and earth. As a result, not only do we have to be familiar with the market forces, but also the environment which a company operates from, and the man himself that is directing the company.
When we analyze the shares of Amazon.com, there is no doubt that we must look into the brains of the operation, Jeff Bezos. Bezos was born on January 12, 1964. For those who are familiar with Bazi (Four Pillars of Destiny), you can see that his day master is the Geng Metal, or Yang Metal (庚). To simplify our analysis, we can take a look at a few symbols in his chart. He was born in 1964, but since it is still before Li Chun (立春), we use the Rabbit (卯) as his birth year. When looking into investments, in the case of Jeff Bezos, we must identify his flow, or useful god, and what is favorable to him. Obviously if a specific year or luck cycle is unfavorable to him, the chances of making a successful investment on his shares will be slim. For Jeff Bezos, I have identified it as fire, wood and water (feel free to disagree); Just look at how he started out, books, trading (import/export), and electronics. I would say that this has been discussed upon hundreds of times in my classes in the past 5 years so there is no need for me to explain further. In 2015, it is the year of the Yin Wood Goat (乙未). What we have here is a picture perfect money combination to himself and is solidified by a branch combination, as a result, the chances of massive investment gains in 2015 is extremely high.
Below are the heavenly stem combinations:
The Heavenly Stems Combination
Wood 甲 + Earth 己 = Earth
Wood 乙 + Metal 庚 = Metal
Fire 丙 + Metal 辛 = Water
Fire 丁 + Water 壬 = Wood
Earth 戊 + Water 癸 = Fire
Below is the San He (三合) Wood Combination
Goat 未 + Rabbit 卯 + Pig 亥
So what we see here is a favorable combination of the Geng (庚) day master of Jeff Bezos, combining with the wealth in 2015, Yi Wood (乙). Furthermore, the Rabbit (卯) in his birth year and the Goat (未) of 2015 provide an explosive duo of more wealth. Coincidentally, Amazon shares have pretty much doubled from January of 2015 to July of 2015.
On July 23rd, 2015, it was reported on CNBC the following:
“Bezos, who owns 83,921,121 shares in the company, made a paper gain of more than $8.05 billion prior to the opening on Friday as shares spiked more than 20 percent in premarket trading. Bezos’ net worth jumped to $43.2 billion from $34.7 billion the previous day, according to Forbes.”
The other side of the equation is looking into what the market needs are. In North America, online shopping has exploded and will continue to grow and be the norm; a major factor that comes into play when investing in Amazon.com as it is their core in driving earnings going forward. Secondly, their AWS is starting to pick up steam as more middle and large companies begin to adopt to the cloud infrastructure, although profit margins are slim, Bezos has his ways of attracting new subscribers and raising margins thereafter. Cloud computing is the next big thing, if not already a big thing when it comes to the internet. So Amazon checks two major boxes in it’s earth luck, online shopping, and the Cloud.
From a share price perspective, although it is hovering in the $500 range, it’s market capitalization is only at around a paltry sum of $200 Billion USD compared to the size of Apple which is at $700 Billion. The growth for Amazon is there as the Kindle Fire is gaining traction and directly competes against the iPad. Perhaps we may see the passing of the torch to a new leader in the tech world? From Steve Jobs to Jeff Bezos?
To discuss about Forex, trading shares, and the application of Qi Men Dun Jia (奇门遁甲), and Bazi (八字), one has to be also familiar with candlesticks, moving averages, and recognition of patterns such as flags, head and shoulders, and momentum. Below we see the chart of Amazon.com where it was hovering at approximately $280USD per share in January of 2015. This was the time where I did a talk during Chinese New Year in Chinatown in Vancouver, and also at a corporate Feng Shui event at SAP Vancouver. Both instances, I have made clear indications to load up on Amazon.com shares. Today (July 24th, 2015), it is standing at approximately $530 and change. I had first expressed my entry point of $180 in my Singapore Bazi class in 2012 and many of my students were interested in Bazi trading, the rest is history. It is not merely my prediction that got this right, but the fact that a fundamental destiny analysis and the thousand year old practice of Bazi (八字) that got it right. Most masters and practitioners familiar with Bazi will have caught this one and made a handsome return.
The chart below shows one interesting feature for those who look at patterns. A flag pattern had formed from the period between February and April at the range of $350/share. During this period, the accumulation and trading helped solidfy the stock for a healthy earnings run-up on April 23rd. As we can see, there was a repeated pattern from April 23rd all the way until July 23rd where the stock was cruising along between $430 and $480 per share before it catapulted to $560. Whether it can repeat this pattern, further analysis of the stock and Bezos using QMDJ and Bazi would be in order. But for now, I will enjoy this ride and look for my next trade which I will reveal in Mexico in October of 2015.
