Hello there!

After completing the game and not having enough cash to buy anything good i decided to research the LCN stock market, from this forum I have came to the realisation that the LCN is just a gamble (no way to influence it) after completing the story mode.

I decided to start the story mode again but with a difference... I would obviously leave a certain persons missions till the end of the game but I would pay more attention to the stock market based on the missions I was doing, the result appears to be a working LCN stock market.

In short, for the tldr people.

LCN stock market only works while in story mode via ALL missions that invole a company.

I'm testing it as I play through, so far I've spotted one glaring oppertunity to make huge amounts of $$$ through normal out of mission trading.

Anyone care to test my theory?

Involves the first major heist, only clue I'll give to avoid spoiling it.

Ah! Never thought of that! I've only done the first heist so I'll keep this in mind for the rest! I presume you're buying stocks in the competitors of the companies you hit?

Doing the Trevor missions atm so I can't get Mike or franklin just now. Once I get back to them I can resume my testing.

It would make sense tho, invest in LCN while in story then BAWSAQ after story.. Just BAWSAQ doesn't work due to online not launching yet??

dont do any lester mission before you complete the story , after that play lester's assassination mission and you will make about 130m+ on each character.

Just another reason why I'm starting over.

Yeah in saving those missions as part of the plan I have.

Can anyone tell me does the burger place "up-n-atom" have any place in the storyline? Or was mentioned throughout? (Might wanna spoiler the answer out) I can't remember.

so destroying a bunch of cars won't help Augury Insurance stock to go up?

If anything, that would make their stocks go down as they've had pay out a fortune on insurance claims!

I was thinking that too, see for  years I go to cheatcc.com for cheat codes and tips, and they said if you buy Augury stocks and destroy cars like crazy you stock would go up :( Im sad cuz I finished the game and I only have 28 million on each character. There\s no way for me to buy golf course ect.

I'm starting a new game too, to save the assassination missions until after the last heist. Quite frustrating because I was looking forward to tackling 100% completion after having done the story missions, but I don't expect it to be too bad because I can do things differently.

Trying to workout why a successful company is worthless by the end of the game? There must be some reason?

I don't understand why everyone wants to buy the golf course. It is the worst investment anyone can make. The income for that business is a joke, I just take my chances on the stock market. I've been doing fine, even after the Lester missions I still make money off of stocks.

There isn't many Lester missions tbh.

The reason everyone wants the golf course is because you complete the game, see that it costs 150 million and that your bank balance is only a fraction of that amount... It then makes you think there must be something I've still do to to make up that 150+ million...

The sad reality is once story mode finishes it's like slamming a brick wall, the game basically dies after you finish off the few stranger missions.

Surely R* didn't leave such a huge flaw in there game?

I could make 200 million on my completed game save file but the problem is that I can only make maybe 2 million at a time and it takes awhile. There is very little things to actually do while u let ur money grow!!

Sorry if it's a stupid question but do you have to invest in the opposition of the company involved in Lester's missions then sell afterwards?
Thanks

Its really disappointing that investing during the assassination missions makes or breaks your save. There needs to be higher rewards at end game.

As soon as you unlock Trevor, try and look for the fleece bank shop near his safehouse. But just before that, go to LCN and buy maze bank stocks. Then go to fleece bank and destroy that shop completely and the stocks ALWAYS go up, you will only notice it going a bit down once or twice, but it never goes to red. It goes up slowly slowly though.

I bought Life Invader stocks after 'Friend Request', thinking that they must go up. They've continued to drop. Do they go back up?

how do you destroy a shop? when you toss grenades at buildings nothing much happens in terms of damage.
