Anyone up for some stock market collusion?
 
So BAWSAQ is apparently based on what players do & purchase. Everyone's buying up AmmuNation right now, because it's considered safe. I sort of want to see if we can affect trends of low priced stocks with any efficacy.

I just bought a bunch of 'Hawk and Little (HAL).' Anyone else want to try the same, see if we can influence the market in a way that's beneficial to folks on X360A? I think it's $0.78 a share right now, so it's not exactly hard to buy shares.

The SEC can kiss my (character's) ass(es)!

I think it would take maybe thousands of players for it to take noticeable affect? :p

How much did you invest? I imagine its going to have to be considerable to boost. But i will throw in a some on my chars and see what happens i guess.

Noticed ammunation was up lots earlier, wish i had thought more about the stock market yesterday lol

I chose a low, low, LOW one specifically because it'll be easier to buy more shares. I'm mostly just curious.

I'm willing to buy loads of stock, it's profit anyway but like fox said I doubt we'll see any change. We'll need a LOT of investors lol.

Not necessarily profit. I mean, it's damn low, but it could still go lower.

Put 5k in from each atm.

Spock 09-18-2013 11:37 PM

Okaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay, I bought 212,450 shares

Noisy Neighbour 09-18-2013 11:56 PM

I am also open for investing in :eek:

I'll admit im taking my time and enjoying things but affording shit is still bad for me on 2 chars lol

DaveBodom 09-19-2013 01:12 AM

So is it actually taking any effect? I sort of assumed BAWSAQ wouldnt come into play player influenced until Online was released.

I don't think it gets updated for a while. Maybe every 12 or 24 hours.

The BAWSAQ Market is influenced by others and the other one is all just single player stuff.

that is amazing. i cant wait to play this game.. hopefully i will be able to connect my xbox to ethernet (never tried before, but wireless doesn't work currently) either way it seems like GTA online isn't going to be up til october anyway so i shouldn't need it.

It hasn't yet, but nothing I've been watching has changed, so I think Spock's right, and it updates periodically. Updating in real time would be very computationally expensive, so it makes sense that it'd update periodically.

jedijaxpavan 09-19-2013 02:20 AM

I just bought 150,000 shares of HAL between all 3 characters.

Maka 09-19-2013 04:43 AM

Bought 100,000 of HAL, just to see if this could work, haha.

Never knew that, thanks for the info.
Not got much cash yet, but grabbed some Amunation stocks.
Reckon the Auto repairs/mods will be an earner as well.

Ethereal235 09-19-2013 08:12 AM

I really am wondering now when this stuff updates. Glanced over the recent time history stuff and it does look like it updates once a day, but I want to see what, if anything, happens today.

GamingDude 09-19-2013 08:25 AM

made quite a bit of money investing in Vapid (VAP) and Fruit (FRT)

zambeezi 09-19-2013 10:30 AM

How do you access the stock market? I'm guessing it happens at some point during a mission...

IXISHADOW 09-19-2013 10:42 AM

582,519 shares bought. Don't let me down!

Access internet via phone or computer, go to Money section and then the LCN or whatever it is.

Gareth Dent 09-19-2013 11:26 AM

I think its kind of pointless, i made almost max money in the game from like 3 stock market investments then i just went round and actually bought properties.

The investments? well not to spoil the game but lets just say don't invest in lifeinvader, make positive to invest loads in..

-BetaPharmecuticals
-Fruit

(theres one more mission you do, i forget hoping somebody fills in the gap)
then after the mission, sell these stocks for almost double profit.

Buy properties, play the game or wait in game hours, then buy more, rinse and repeat.

Thank you!

Arrie3 09-19-2013 12:08 PM

So, how am i supposed to buy shares via the internet? (real life?)

Thanks in Advance

Teslasnip 09-19-2013 12:43 PM

Use the ingame phone, bring it up and then press down to use the internet. Then look at the tabs on top and use the ones that says economy and something else, then click on LCN and then market and have a look at the prices. BAWSAQ can be accessed from the link on the economy page. You can also switch between the two markets from the other markets market page.

:mad:Freaking Bawsaq is still down for me. R* needs to get their shit together....
