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?

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.

If it does, it might be possible for everyone to sell shares and make a profit before it tanks. At that many shares, it could go up $0.30 and you could make $684,174.

Just hoping for the best...

We have bought over 7 million shares so let's hope.

I just put my money in this stock this afternoon. The stock is now down a few percent. Nice to see my real life stock magic carries over into the GTA universe. Please don't blame me if the stock plummets now.

If the BAWSAQ is anything like a real stock market, the reason that HAL are increasing so much is they're an arms manufacturer. A lot of non-x360a players seem to be piling their money into Ammunation, so we're enjoying the follow on from that rise, as well as the demand we're creating ourselves.

No. If a lot of players where investing in Ammunation, their stock price would be increasing. Since launch its gone from $699-$701 to $458.28 at a fall of -25.14% from the time of this post. Which is a huge significant loss.

Like people have said before; When online launches and people are going to rob a store the only one comes to mind for a lot of people is Ammunition because its easily recognizable.
Then again the initial swarm of players buying weapons and stockpiling ammo may drive the price back up past the $700 mark, I wouldn't expect it to last long before it falls below $500 again.
