Ride with the bulls
Raid with the bears
Be smart, be wise
Money is everywhere
Never go against a major force. Never swim against the current. Never catch a falling dagger. And never pee against the wind if you don’t want to get wet.
Factors, many and varied, affect share prices. Not all syndicates make money. Some lost at their own game. Syndicates often go against one another. This is a zero-sum game. One man’s win is another’s loss.
Don’t blame the syndicates if you lose money. If you can’t beat them, join them. And if you can’t join them leave them, but don’t go against them.
