I have no BAWSAQ :(

The stock exchange website BAWSAQ doesn't work for me. It always says 'down for maitnence'. I thought advancing in the story would unlock it but people I know said they've always had it. I've also just been told by a certain character in the game to invest in a company on their website so I should have access, right? Any tips?

Are you accessing it through your phone or a laptop? I don't think it matters but I've only visited Bawsaq once as Franklin at the start of the game. There are other stock exchange websites on there though.

Me neither. Mine was working yesterday, and I invested about 500k on a company whose stock was about to go up. When I went to bed, my stock had rose 50%. Woke up today, the market is down and it's saying my stock is worth 0. Hope not for good.

Mine wouldnt work if my live was offline, might be to do with the social club though as BAWSAQ, if im not mistaken, is the player driven stock market thats kept updated through the club.

Cant be, certain company goes crashing in one mission.

Also just looked, BAWSAQ site is down but use the LCN website, least thats what ive been using it seems. Works if you go to the LCN website and enter the BAWSAQ site using the links on that page.

Been loooking around and the BAWSAQ is tied to the social center somhow which had been going up and down for GTA5 all day. You just have to wait for it to come back up when you are connected to xbox live.

Read somewhere else that stock goes up and down depending on what other people are investing but no idea how true that part is.

I had the same issue. It started working after I logged on to the Rockstar Social Club and told it to re-link to my Xbox GT & reset the game.

It's tied to the social club so if that's down then the website is down. I can't remember where, but I read that certain stock is tied to player's actions (if everybody constantly crashed a certain car make then their stock goes down, etc.) but I doubt that's real.

I cant get on social club still but i can access all stocks fine.. Not sure how that works if its tied to social club properly.

Also why i could access LCN then go to the BAWSAQ site when going directly there didn't work..

I think the BAWSAQ is directly linked to the Rockstar Social Club, while LCN is in-game only. I've not yet been able to access the BAWSAQ (and I've run into some other troubles relating to the Social Club).

Just quit the game, sign out of XBox Live, sign back in, restart the game and you should be golden. I haven't been able to access Bawsaq all day, but as soon as I did that it worked.

Is BAWSAQ for GTA 5 Online only? At least never been able to use it and LCN looks like it's for your single player experience.
