What sucks is that only some stocks show on bawsaq, meaning some of those future missions for Lester, you wont get a chance to invest in those stocks because it will be down.!!

It's unlock by a mission. This is not related to the internet.

I think BAWSAQ is supposed to keep track of ALL the players worldwide playing so you need the internet.. And Rockstar has been tweaking it or the fact that they cannot keep up with the server load for this 80% online game...

That just means you are growing up. Ya know, becoming a man.

Hmmm I wonder if Rockstar did that on purpose. LMAO

Did everyone's BAWSAQ drop at once? I feel like this shouldve been a poll.

I really don't think it is. You're talking about the local stock exchange (the LCN), which is unlocked by a mission.

 

I'm further ahead in the game than my girlfriend, so it's definitely not mission related.

I can access BAWSAQ, but it will only let me buy MORE of stocks I already own. If I try to buy anything new, it says down for maintenance. Once out of ever 10 or 20 tries, it will let me buy something I do not own. But I have to try again and again and again, extremely frustrating.

THIS. Really perturbed, a particular stock is down 99% after a particular action I completed, and none of the three protags can purchase it yet. However, it more than balanced out (edit for clarity: balanced out frustration with delight, the market's still f*cked at the moment) when I switched to Trev and well... scooter brothers!!!

Bump.  This is a huge problem for me.  I can never buy or sell stock on the BAWSAQ.  Neither the real estate site as well.  Suggestions?  I am proceeding with the story and missing all the stock opportunities that Lester creates.  Lame.

I was having the same problem earlier tonight. I tried to restart the game, the console (PS3), reload the save...nothing worked. I kept showing a zero balance on my stocks and the stupid maintenance error on the BAWSAQ page.

 

So, I ventured over to Social Club on my laptop to browse the stock prices. Did that, went back and restarted the game and biggity-bam, BAWSAQ is back up and running!

 

I've not had a chance to try it again, so it might have been just dumb luck or a fluke.

What is was for me was that I hadnt agree to a new privacy policy. Press start go to settings then facebook (you dont need to connect the game to facebook) but if you hae a GTA social club thing there agree to the terms of use press ok and Bawsac should start working again.

Obviously you have to be connected to the net and signed in with your gamer id for this to work.

As a follow-up to what I wrote the other day, I've continued to use the above method several times to fix the BAWSAQ down error when playing on PS3. It works even if I just check the stocks on my laptop on Social Club, and then just switch characters. No need to even restart the game, console (ps3), or reload a save.

Guy at Rockstar games: "hey everyone! Let's make a stock market that works flawlessly and let's make one that is utter crap most of the time! That should be a cool feature." (f*cking retards) rockstar games I mean. The bawsaq market has me frustrated!

I was trying to do the random event that involves the tinkle guy but when I try to invest it's almost always down! They really should have just combined all markets on the LCN market. The LCN is the least buggy market service.
