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.

A fair point actually, I'd not really paid attention to stock prices beyond HAL.

I'll be knocking off 24/7 because I'm more of a two-bit criminal and they're probably slightly easier to do successfully!

Does anyone know (provide source) what affects the BAWSAQ market? I have all of my money in HAL and PIS and want to see if there's anything I can do to help it along since a lot of the businesses can't be entered like Ammunation can be.

I also recommend PissWasser. It's up 33% for me in one day. Unfortunately, I invested late in HAL, so I missed the big run up. Out of curiousity, does anybody know how much money is needed for the online play?

I don't quite understand this question; do you mean what is the cheapest ammount you'll need to earn to buy the cheapest Apartment, Garage and Insure a Vehicle, for the achievement? I don't believe anyone knows that yet.

Yeah, how much money is needed for GTA Online and do our single player cash totals carry over somehow to multiplayer? Or do we start from scratch in multiplayer?


BTW ...

HAL == $12.69
PIS == $10.45


AMU is plummeting right now (Ammu-Nation). Perhaps, a good buying opportunity when it bottoms out.

I believe MP is basically a seperate game so no money, properties, guns or anything from the Story carries over.

Yes, but it's impossible to know if it will start to drop at $15 or $150. You could make a 10% return or a 1000% return. Make two saves. One with all of your money invested and one with no money invested.

I keep seeing posts about people buying the stock. I have yet to see anyone initiating a sell-off. Is everyone still waiting for the bubble to burst on its own?

Actually, some people are trying to pop the Pisswasse bubble, or atleast cause it to dip a bit. The goal is to see if we actually have influence on these stocks, instead of it all being scripted (selling betwwn 4:40pm to about 6:30pm EST). I decided to participate and just sold all my PIS. When the stock updates in 2 hours, if it goes down somewhat, then we'll known for sure that we can manipulate stocks. If it goes up, I'll reinvest my cash into PIS or HAL. I'm still way way away from being able to afford all properties.

There is also an apparent opportunity with LifeInvader. Supposedly, every now and then it drops down to about $2.50. Most of the time, I see it in the high 20s, but apparently it rises every so often in the mid 200s.

Majority of us have moved to Online mode which makes playing SP kinda pointless, but just a bit of an update.

Stock market is no longer down for maintenance. Returned to see that HAL is now trading at $31.94. Thank fuck I got on this at $0.76

Question is do I take my winnings and leave, or keep it in there and hope it hits $50+?

Congratulations.

I lost my nerve when the price wobbled at around $13, so sold up then.

If you're willing to check it each day, then wait until it starts to drop, whether it's at $50 or $500.

So HAL's finally started to drop, but I managed to turn a few hundred thousand into over 100 million during that time!

Looks like Badger (BDG) is in freefall right now, down from a high of $300 to only $10 at the time of writing.

I think this will be the next one to buy, need to make some more money to get Franklin that Golf Course!

Yeah I noticed the drop last Wednesday, when it dropped below $100 per share, I left it a day and it had already dropped down to $96 from $98 so sold up.

Today it's at $93 so quite thankful.

If you've got shares, I'd advise to sell before it takes a dive off a cliff. (HAL)*
