Last updated 15 January, 2019

A quick overview of the most auspicious timings on 4 Feb 2019 to deposit money into your accounts!

There is a common Chinese New Year practice to deposit money into your account during an auspicious timing on an auspicious day. Why? To invite better wealth luck in the coming year.

This is called Li Chun (立春) and is the main reason for the massive queues you sometimes see forming at banks and cash deposit ATMs during Chinese New Year.

Interestingly enough, Li Chun for the Year of the Pig doesn’t actually start in the Year of the Pig – it starts on the last day of the Year of the Dog, 4 February 2019.

Here are the most auspicious timings to make a deposit into your account according to Way Fengshui.
