MANILA -- Several businesses will be more prosperous than others in year of the earth pig, a feng shui master said Friday, 3 days before the Chinese Lunar New Year.

Businesses with wood and earth elements, such as construction, are lucky in 2019, but industries related to metal will face "many challenges," feng shui Master Joseph Chau told ANC's Market Edge.

"Among all the careers this year, those that would face many challenges are those with metal elements like banking, car sales, machinery and raw materials," he said.

Western currencies will be stronger than counterparts from the east as feng shui's "lucky star is pointing to the west direction" this year, Chau said.

"In 2019, 2020, 2021 the British pound and the Euro would have the possibility to rise up," he said.

"The US should be very careful because they have to make a long-term investment. They cannot settle for fast results," he said.

The Philippines is poised for 3 years of good luck from this year until 2021, as "water elements" from the earth pig can bring "balance" to a hot season country.

A "disaster star" in the southwest could herald an "unforgettable accident," he said.
