Taobourse, an offshoot of I Ching, gives a clear-cut reply to any request made by a person who wants to buy, hold or sell shares on the stock market.
I Ching stemming from ancient Chinese wisdom has come down to us through the centuries, over thousands of years. Millions of people consult it not just to predict the future but also to find guidance in all kinds of fields of everyday life such as, love, business, etc…
I Ching proposes ways of understanding the current state of the world and its possible evolutions and plays the role of an oracle to be consulted before making a decision on a difficult issue.
Why not consult it about the specific field of the stock market ?
Taobourse uses the 64 hexagrams of the book of changes (“The I Ching” Richard Wilhem).
Each oracle (hexagram) is composed of:
- Its Chinese name and its meaning.
- The hexagram
- The image: the representation of what is to come. It contains the seeds of what is to come.
- The judgment: the interpretation of the image in the form of advice related to the specific field of stock investment.
The person consulting must ask his or her questions clearly.
Examples of questions:
- How will such and such a share react : in the short term, over several days, in the long term, today ? (time must be clearly defined).
- What will the future of my portfolio be if I buy such or such a share : in the short term, in the long term ? The reply may not please the person consulting. However, the judgment does give nonetheless an indication of how to reach one’s objective.
Consulting TAOBOURSE will help your make decisions. It will become your “wise man”. It will help you “work” on your intuition … That something which beyond the study of the fundamental aspects of a company or any graphical analysis will reassure you or help you make your decision.
Of course, everyone can “complete” the oracles by referring either to the unabridged text translated by Richard Wilhem or to any other reliable source.
Here are several extracts from the book of changes“ I CHING” by Richard Wilhem:
Page 3 (Introduction) : “…Chinese life is completely steeped in I Ching even in the following everyday aspects. When you go through a Chinese town, you can see here and there, at the corner of a street, a soothsayer sitting at a table covered correctly and holding a brush and a tablet in his hand ready consult the ancient book for advice and guidance on how to deal with the sundry necessities of life. What is more, the golden signs which adorn the shops, wooden panels with a black lacquer background hanging perpendicular to the houses, are covered in inscriptions whose flowery language always reminds one of the thoughts and words of I Ching. Even the governors of a state as modern as Japan, who are known for their show of subtle caution, do not refrain from resorting to the advice of that old, holy book.”
Pages 11 and 12 (I. Use of the book of changes § b entitled “the book of wisdom”) : “…everything which takes place in the visible world is the result of an ”image”, of an idea in the invisible world. It follows that, any visible phenomenon is, so to say, just a copy of a super-sensory event: this copy, from a temporal point of view, comes after the super-sensory event it reflects. These ideas are accessible immediately by intuition to holy men and to wise men in contact with the upper spheres. These holy people are capable of intervening decisively in the events of this world. Thus with the sky Man makes up the super-sensory world of ideas and, with the earth, the corporal world of the visible sphere. These three principles form the triad of primordial powers.”
This triad is to be found in Japanese floral art, Ikebana, in which the composition of a bouquet is structured around the triptych Sky-Man-Earth - the marriage of the visible and the invisible.
“This doctrine of ideas is used in two distinct ways. The I Ching presents the images of the phenomena and with them the forming of states in statu nascendi (in their state of birth). Through this, by distinguishing the seeds man learns how to foretell the future as well as how to understand the past. Thus the images which are initially hexagrams also serve as models which show how to act correctly in any given circumstances.”
“In addition to the images, a third major element exists: the judgment. Thanks to this, the image seems to be given the right to speak. Judgements indicate whether an action can lead to fortune or misfortune, to remorse or humiliation. In this way they give someone the opportunity to maybe abstain from an action brought on by a given action, if this action could turn out to be harmful, and thus not be dependent on the pressure of events. The book of changes offers the reader, through its judgments and the explanations which have been added since the time of Confucius, the most consummate treasure of fundamental Chinese wisdom. It thus allows him to have an overall view of the different forms life can take on and, thanks to this insight, enables him to organize his existence organically in full sovereignty, so as to be in harmony with the ultimate Tao which is at the heart of everything that exists.”
