GTA 5 stock market guide


The BAWSAQ is the stock market that is affected by in-game players which you can also use the Rockstar Social Network to view stocks in real-time (according to the site, anyways.) The site will give detailed information on the past behavior of stocks—over the past 7 days and the past 24 hours-- as well as how well the return percentage on your stocks are doing.

What actually affects the market is still up in the air. It seems that there needs to be a mass influence of the same actions by many, many players over time--such as players buying up tons of ammo from Ammu-Nation to affect prices.

Trying to affect stock prices alone, such as investing in Sprunk soda and then going to the Bus Station and drinking all the Sprunk in the various machines there, won’t work.

Note: The GTA V Online BAWSAQ market doesn’t seem to be up and working as of yet.

    Dont buy Facade after doing the vice assassination, it will go down 24.7 billion percent. I did it and put in 46 million and lost all my money..

    Only Play The First Mission of letters assassinations and then kill Trevor at the end. You'll end up with his cut of the big heist and both characters will end up with 2 billion.

    Also, I'm pretty sure I've heard the radio give out some stock hints as well. Not too sure though seeing as the news reports seem to come on at the worst possible times for me.

    You forgot to mention the random event of driving the guy to the airport who gives you a stock tip to invest in Tinkle, as well as the guy who emails you with shares of Animal Ark for getting his bike back.
