It is the year of the fire monkey in 2016; the year of the red monkey. Monkeys are clever but often naughty, and they are wily beasts and very much on the ball; so watch your step this year. A focus on global financial events is predicted by the year of the monkey; and the world economy may face some dangerous moments this year. It is advisable to pay extra close attention to your investments this year, if you do not want to fall foul of the red monkey; and end up in the red.
The status quo may dramatically change in the year of the fire monkey. I immediately think about China and the Chinese economy; will we see a worsening or an improvement here? The year of the monkey indicates a change in fortune and status. We here at ACM Group hope that the forecast will see a big improvement in the Chinese economy and that the red monkey will bring much luck to Chinese people everywhere.
North Korea is being a naughty monkey at the moment by firing its missile test; international condemnation followed immediately. North Korea claim that it is a satellite launch and celebrated the firing of the rocket with a public fireworks display on Monday evening. The United States claim that this is a front to test a long range ballistic missile. The monkey likes to show off and the missile test coincided with the Chinese New Year, and the Super Bowl in America.
In Australia, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, who very often grins like a monkey, a chimpanzee comes to mind, will contest his first election as PM. We at ACM Group foresee a victory for the smiling wily Malcolm Turnbull in the year of the red monkey. There may, however, be financial corruption uncovered within the government and a leading Liberal will lose his place in the government. Tony Abbott, who also has ears like a monkey and grimaces like a monkey, may be involved in naughty and disruptive political activities; this will help Malcolm Turnbull to win the election. Bill Shorten will be the unlucky monkey and will be deposed, or he will quit his position as leader of the ALP.
In America, Hilary Clinton will not win the US Presidential election and she may not even win preselection. Hilary is very un-monkey like and a candidate with more monkey charm will win out in the year of the red monkey. Bernie Sanders, perhaps, or will it be Ted Cruz?
