So this is only going to be for single player? I ask because as someone else mentioned, R* has stated that they will work as the "government" in GTAO and will take actions to prevent people from manipulating/abusing the system. If anything, this whole initiative could potentially make R* limit the natural rise and fall of stocks.
Like I say, we're going to be careful with our investments. We won't be greedy. I'm relying on everyone who will be taking part in this 'insider trading' project to not put all of their money in if we decide to plan a mass sell-off. This should be done on a smaller scale to benefit everyone online. So instead of putting in the millions that we're putting in with the Pisswasser thread, we'll invest a maximum of $50,000 per person. We've yet to see how exactly we're going to affect the stock market, but for now, that figure is what I propose as the cap for how much money any of us should invest into any one company.
This needs to be done fairly so that we don't have too much of an impact. I don't want to be responsible for R* deciding to limit how much stocks rise and fall. I mean, even if prices rise in the same way that they have with Pisswasser, we'll be making a decent profit. So, (this is a completely random figure, but I think it fits) perhaps about $400,000 after one weekend.
That's another point I wanted to make. The maximum length of time that I would like these mass sell-offs to go on for is one week. That way, we'll make a decent amount of money, but we'll limit the amount of money we make. This will then, hopefully, ensure that everything is balanced and we aren't gaining a huge monetary advantage over other players, especially in the immediate aftermath after the release of GTA Online.
