Well, since the game landed on my doormat this morning, I've been itching for R* servers to catch up with the high load so that I can get on Bawsaq! After playing around for some time, I've decided to get this one stop shop setup for stock market actions!
Bawsaq (Bawsaq Minisite)- This is the online market, based on what players are doing globally, it is wise to buy stocks in weapon & ammunition companies quick.
Keep in mind that Japan have not had their copy of GTAV officially launched, and wont until the 10th of October, so you can either buy now while it climbs and sell when they send it sky-rocketing, or wait for a dip and buy then.
LCN - Offline market, based on in game events - rapid profit to be made
Switch Investment Tactic
- Keep an ear out for announcements on the radio about companies.
- Lester is a bountiful source of market information, pay close attention to what his missions entail
This is a great tactic for boosting your portfolio.
Invest in company A, take out all other companies vehicles, company A's stocks rise. Flip it.
- GoPostal has lowest stock, so you invest in their shares.
- Now go out and destroy PostOP vans
- Watch GoPostal stocks rise
- Sell and repeat
When Lester gives you a mission, he normally says something stock related. The most obvious of which are assassination missions against CEO's. Invest in the opposing companies stock! Once he says something stock related, cancel the mission (if you want ALL characters to invest) and make that stock purchase
LCN Stock Market - Opposing Companies
|Slaughter, Slaughter & Slaughter||Bullhead|
Inner-City = "Regular" Delivery Truck
Industrial Areas = Large Delivery Trucks
Country Freeways = Big Rigs
If the overall community rob one store more than the others, then its stocks will fall, same goes for cars and money in the banks of each character
This is a work in progress thread, so any additions are welcome.
Yes, there is an exploit to play the offline stock market, however where's the fun in that? This is a thread for legit (as far as in-game rigging lol) playing of the markets
