Cheat The Stock Market, $92 Million in 30 minutes.

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this has already been thought of because I never looked it up or anything, but it's something I thought of earlier today. It turns out that the stock market DOES NOT change accordingly to your actions, it's just random. When you load your game it randomly generates from a list of scenarios so it changes every time.

I made $92,000,000 in just 30 minutes, but I probably could have gone higher had I bought it at a lower point.

*Buy any stock that's on an UP trend at it's low point or mid point, quick save (as a new slot, in case you stuff up).
*Wait for it to go up, keep sleeping to pass time, but don't save the game with the bed, instead hit O (PS) or B (Xbox) to go back without saving.
*Quick save each time the profit margin goes higher, if it starts to go down, just load your quick save and it'll re-generate the stock market so that it might go up A LOT!

Here's a video I made showing how I did it:

"But how is that fun, being able to buy everything?"

 

- the people who don't understand that they don't have to spend that money, but the option is there.

It sure helps if you want to buy all the properties, like the golf course but don't want to be broke afterwards, so you can still buy tanks and airplanes and such. Or if you completed the story and didn't do the stock market while doing Lester's missions, it's a good way to have the ability to buy everything without having to start all over again.

 

It's kind of like doing the money cheat in San Andreas and then going all in on the blackjack table and doubling it lol.

This seems like a nice trick, but it looks like you already had at least $130m invested in AUG to make that kind of profit in the first place, some of us may not be so fortunate to have that kind of cash in our bank accounts :p

 

How did you earn that much money in-game?

Yeah, so I managed to go from 6 mil to 12 mil in around four hours, but my method is as follows:

  1. Quick save before buying anything stock-wise.
  2. Invest all cash into one stock either at its lowest value or on an up trend but not yet maxed out (weekly trend-wise).
  3. Sleep without saving. (As you noted.)
  4. Check and see how much I lost or gained. If the stock is around the weekly max, sell out. I've lost a couple hundred grand, just reload the save and start over.

My main question is: does saving when the stock has risen a bit in value and you've gained a decent percentage really lock the stock profit percentage at that exact percentage? Whilst doing this exact same thing for two weeks, I haven't really noticed if when I invested 12 mil into one stock and kept sleeping without saving if it locks the profit if I quick save right when I see I've gotten a return profit instead of losing 300-950k.

 

From my experience, when I restart everything and reload the save, all of the stock prices on the LCN are different when compared to when I previously invested in the same stock.

 

Seriously, I'll see if I can find out for myself, but for now, does the profit really lock when a quick-save is done?

I'll have to check on exact percentages, but from my experience, when you quick save as soon as you have some profit then reload that save again it locks pretty much the same profit you had when you quick saved.
