Gta 5 stock market car insurance

The stock market is a hassle-free way to make a lot of money quickly in Grand Theft Auto V. However, much like is the case in real life, it's also an easy way to lose money just as quickly. The stock markets can be monitored online at bawsaq.com and lcn-exchange.com. Together they list 80 companies whose share price is determined by their success.

The aim is generally to buy stock when its value is low and sell when it's high to maximize the return on your investment. The share price can be influenced by the player, for example by showing loytalty to a particular brand, or by engaging in corporate espionage. The latter is much more fun.

Company Listings

There are two stock markets in GTA 5. The LCN Exchange shares areoffline and their price is determined by your actions in single-player mode. To access the LCN, open your phone web browser, go to Money and Services and look for LCN Exchange. It should be the top result.

BAWSAQ shares are offline, which means that an internet connection is required to trade them. If you see the message: "The market is down for maintenance" then it means you are not connected to PlayStation Network / Xbox Live. BAWSAQ shares are influenced by the GTA Online community.

How to Make a Killing in The Stock Market

A guide to the GTAV stock markets by Crokey
(With some minor editing by Spuds725)

There are a few mentions around the internet and this place on how to make your money using the assassination missions given to you by Lester, but few if any actually give a detailed step by step to make the most of it. In this guide I will give a step by step process with some hints and tips to speed things up a little.

Cooperative car insurance email signature Lester advises Franklin of potential stock market investments

CAUTION: This guide may contain spoilers, nuts and ingredients that will affect those with an intolerance to dairy.

From the way I did it as described in this guide I managed to make $2.1bn, your total payout may vary depending on if you chose Option A, B or C (if after main missions) or if you made numerous purchases before taking on the missions, or do this before the end of the main storyline.

In the build up to my undertaking these missions, I had already purchased a Hanger and Helipad with Michael, and a boat slip with Trevor, as well as purchasing the Taxi Business, The Dock, Los Santos Customs, The Towing Company and the Mackenzie Airstrip, with differing characters and completed the main storyline missions.

Tips

  • When you save your game at a safe house using Michael and Franklin time progresses 6 hours, when you save your game with Trevor time progresses 12 hours. Don't forget the quick save option on your in-game phone, this won't progress time but can 'bookmark' your save slot until you get back to a safe house.
  • Markets don't really move during the weekend, so keep an eye on your in-game phone to check out the day of the week, but during this guide I will mention this before undertaking missions
  • Any mention of time throughout this guide will be in-game not real time, so when I say 48 hours I don't mean you've got to spend a couple of days taking the dog for a walk, working, sleeping, spending time with the other half or updating your stamp collection. However doing this guide may take you a couple of real time hours.
  • Optional: You can keep two save games going at the same time, one as a good copy so once each mission has passed and you've completed the pay-out cycle, the other as a work in progress save for when you're speeding up time, keep a mental note which one is the good one and which is your WIP one.
  • In this guide I won't be detailing how to do each mission, as there are numerous guides around for that, and besides they are fairly self explanatory and easy missions anyway (barring the lack of a first aid kit during the 5th mission)
  • When switching to the other protagonists don't forget Trevor gets himself in some real pickles including being chased by the cops which is awkward on some of the missions where you need to sell quick and buy the next lot of stock. When switching I would recommend switching to Trevor first, Michael second then Franklin last as you'll be doing the missions with him.
  • I'll mention the marketplace each stock is on however I'm fairly sure some swap their markets (may have been done during updates, to be confirmed), so if it's not on the LCN check out the BAWSAQ and vice-versa.
  • During my run through I had left the missions till last, however I had fully modded weapons and did very little modding of vehicles, depending on when you choose to do these missions keep an eye on your current account just in case you start running a little low.

Before you start

  • Do not do the Hitch Lift 1 Mission, this is the Random Event where the guy whose car has broken down just off the highway on the west side of the map who wants a lift to the airport. This guy will give you a Stock Market tip which you can make a good return.
  • Some of the stock tips require access to the BAWSAQ. This is an online only stock market, so you'll need to be connected to the internet and to the Rockstar servers (Social Club account etc.) for this to work. The LCN is offline so can be done at all times.
  • Read each mission carefully first before committing, as some require the stock to be bought before the mission, and some after.

Basics

Axa car insurance cashback imdb The LCN Exchange is one of two stock markets in GTA V
  • To purchase each stock, open your phone's browse, go to the Money section and select the relevant stock market (BAWSAQ or LCN), find the company and click on it, select Buy, then click and hold on the + until you've bought all of the stock you can. Then click Buy and Confirm. Note: when you get to the high values quickly check that the stock you are buying doesn't put you into a minus figure (buying more than you can afford) as the game won't purchase the stock, you may need to click the - a few times until you still have a positive balance.
  • To check the payout of each stock purchase, open your phone's browser, go to the Money section and select the relevant stock market (BAWSAQ or LCN), select the My Portfolio tab and there will be a column for what the return percentage is. There will be a +/- 1-2% variance with the payout this is due the fact the regular stock movement is included in the percentage.
  • To sell your stock, open your phone's browser, go to the Money section and select the relevant stock market (BAWSAQ or LCN), select the My Portfolio tab then select Sell All, then confirm.

Let's begin...

Other Stock Tips

  • This is a list of missions that have also been known to affect stocks as posted within THIS POST by ribon. After testing the markets with these stock tips they can be fairly unpredictable and I would suggest trying them at your own risk. With the caveat of, if they work for you then then cash in while you can, if they don't then c'est la vie.
  • When I had tested a couple of them and then went back to my good save, the stock price had not reverted back to what it was when I saved (it carried over the stock price from before I reloaded) and meant the stock tip would no longer work. In a couple of cases I had to speed up time in order for the stock to return to normal and then begin the mission; but the sting in the tail was that the tip did not work. These differ from the main Lester missions and the Hitch Lift mission which are more predictable.
  • Huge amount of credit goes to ribon for these tips,

In case it is not readily apparent-- look carefully at the returns for the missions below. For the ones with negative returns, how you would make money on these is by looking at the price of the stock before the mission starts. Do the Mission, and then wait for the stock to drop-- then buy the stock. Stocks with huge drops will eventually return to their former price-- this can take either time (waiting it out) or by completing more story missions. A perfect example of this is the mission Legal Trouble-- FlyUS drops by 50% after this mission and will not rise back up until after you complete Meltdown-- as you can see below-- a 50% drop and a 100% increase (a doubling) from that drop will bring it back to the same price. Some of these can be unpredictable and the order that missions are done or other variables may come into play while doing these. The time that it takes for the bounce to come can be several in game days.

In summary:

  • For Negative return stocks-- purchase after the mission and after the stock drops-- Sell After they have returned to their former price.

For Postive return stocks-- Purchase before the mission, Do the mission, and then watch the price carefully (often) and sell after the bounce

Mini-games used to be the little additions to the core games to please fans and extend gameplay hours but Grand Theft Auto V takes it to a whole different level.

Stock Market, although not a mini-game is one such addition, and it brings a new dynamic to the game. It offers a chance to earn money provided you have necessary information to invest smartly or maybe influence the events to make your investments profitable.

Stock Market in GTA 5 works similar to the real-World stock market with corporate rivals fighting it out to maintain their respective position. All the basics principles of economics pretty much play a role in the in-game stock trading.

For more help on GTA 5, read our Easy Money Guide and Properties Missions Guide.

GTA 5 Stock Market Trading

To make money, your aim should be to buy at low price and sell at high price. It may sound simple but to successfully pull it off; you will need tips about the expected future behavior of the stocks.

You will get this information by listening to the radio and during different missions especially Assassination Missions.

Value of the stocks is affected not only by in-game events but also by the different purchases you will be doing during the course of your playthrough. There are two types of stock markets in GTA 5, LCN and BAWSAQ.

LCN is influenced by the in-game events which can be manipulated in your favor. If you are to invest in LCN, pay close attention to everything that goes around you. Listen to radio regularly for tips of which stock is expected to perform better in the future and make sure you listen to pre and post-mission briefings.

BAWSAQ is influenced by the actions of the players in Rockstar Social Club; actions by the community will drive prices up and down in this stock market. For example, if community starts destroying one type of car, it will affect the stock related to it in BAWSAQ.

How To Make Money in LCN and BAWSAQ
When it comes to LCN investments, it is pretty straightforward. You need to make sure the price of your purchased stocks increases. You can do that by affecting your rival stock by destroying its assets. It’s a basic principle the stock market is running on.

If the stock price of a rival drops, it will increase the price of other. What you need to do is invest in one company and then destroy its rival to increase the value of your stock leading to profit.

LCN Stock Market Related Missions

During the story, Franklin will come across Lester who will offer him missions in which he will have to assassinate a target. All these assassinations have something to do with a stock of the company the target is associated with.

Eliminating them affects the value of the stocks of those particular companies. Make sure you invest at the right time to capitalize on the resulting price appreciation or depreciation after the death of the target.

Missions and Stock Investments – Detailed in Assassination Missions Guide.

Hotel Assassination mission directly affects the stock price of Betta Pharmaceuticals. The Multi Target Assassination mission affects the stock price of Debonaire Cigarettes. The Vice Assassination affects the stock price of Fruit.

The Bus Assassination affects the stock price of Vapid but make sure you buy the stock after completing the mission. The Construction Assassination affects the stock price of Gold Coast. The Big Score affects the stock price of Gold Coast, but you need to buy the stock before completing the heist.

Insider Tip. Do the assassination missions when you can invest at least a million in stocks so that you can make more money with those. Make sure you wait for these assassination missions before investing in stock market and when you are ready to do these missions, invest the money all your characters have in to those stocks.

Do note that eliminating these targets, value of your stocks will increase by a maximum of five percent and that percentage will remain for the next 5-10 minutes before it drops to half and eventually returning back to its normal value. This is your window of opportunity; you need to make quick cash in this window or you will lose the potential of making money with these missions.

Keep a close eye on the stock market to stay on top of these changes. Make sure you frequently refresh the market to note the price trend and make a decision based on that. When the prices reaches the maximum, it will stay there for a while before dropping and eventually coming back to its normal value.

BAWSAQ Investments – How To Make Money

It is the stock market which will really test your judgement. You need to make a smart choice if you want to invest your hard earned money in BAWSAQ. The prices of BAWSAQ stocks are affected by the online community playing the game.

That’s why it was recommended at the launch of the game that you invest in Ammu-Nation at the start of the game since its price will appreciate later in the game as players continue to purchase weapons, armor and ammunition.

It’s a different case now – price of Ammu-Nation has been in free-fall recently due to majority of the community selling back that stock resulting in a sharp decline.

Similarly, prices of less than desirable stocks at the launch (HAL) have sharply increased and continue to rise because majority of the community has shifted their interest towards these low-value stocks.

This is a perfect example of how BAWSAQ works and how you can make money from that market but it requires a lot of conviction and guesswork at your end.

A trick you can use to make a good guess is by following BAWSAQ at RockStar Social Club and deciding where to invest. The catch is, that’s a more updated market than in-game so you will know where the market is heading before hand and you can make a smart investment.

Investing in GTA 5 Stock Market LCN/BAWSAQ

Stock market is there for you to make money even after you are done with Assassination Missions, but that would require your ability to predict trends. How good are you at predicting the stock market trends will determine how much money you can make.

Still, there are few pointers you can keep in mind while investing in stocks post assassination missions. Always study the graphs of stock performance that you are provided before making a purchase.

Analyzing these graphs is very important to accurately predict the stock market trends. Notice the downward and upward movement of stock price in these graphs and try to come up with a hypothetical value of how much profit potential the stock has.

Stocks in GTA 5 are very volatile and are short period investments. Making money off short-term investments requires you to be on top of your game. You need to be actively checking stock market so that you do not miss the window to sell the stocks at profit.

Using the graphs I talked about earlier you need to buy the stocks when they are going down, a trough. At that point, you need to invest money in that stock and sell it when it reaches its high point as per the past trend; it requires an educated guess, but you get the idea.

Always invest in multiple stocks to protect yourself from certain stocks that experience a sharp decline now and then; that’s portfolio management.

In any case, every stock that goes down will eventually come to the price point where you bought it so you can always sell them to break even, but that might require patience at your end.

Do not invest in the stocks that are highly positive or general trend setters of the market. These are the stocks that follow a downward trend and which may result in a loss for you.

From time to time, you may have to calculate the average price of the stock by taking the lowest and the highest value. This will give you a general idea of the price point the stock revolves around.

Make sure you buy the stock when its current price is close to its lowest if you want to make some profit from that investment. Keep an eye on the return on investment of your stocks, the moment it reaches around 10% for LCN stocks and around 30-40% for BAWSAQ, it’s time to sell all the stocks.

BAWSAQ window of opportunity is usually 3-6 hours (These aren’t in-game hours), and peaks are during the weekends. You need to make your move in the given time frame if you want to get that 30-40% return. Invest during the weekends because that’s the best time to make more money.

LCN window of opportunity is five consecutive sleep cycles if you have bought the stock at lowest price or near it and according to the trend, it will go up.

One important thing to note is, you will make more money from trading in BAWSAQ then you will make by trading in LCN assuming constant time. Another important observation is, stocks that are going up will rise quickly and stocks that are going down, will do so quickly.

There will always be a sharp increase or sharp decline giving you a great opportunity to make money from stock investments.

If it is difficult for you to understand these mechanics, you should stick to LCN and come to BAWSAQ only if you are ready for the losses that might result because of a random behavior of the GTA 5 community.

Don’t forget to share different investments and counter-investments you think will help others.

Assassination Mission Stock Investing

As Franklin you can do assassination missions for Lester and each time you carry out a hit, the stock market will be affected.

Here is a big tip (and it isn’t even the main one) – if you really want to cash-in, then wait until the end of the game (when you’ve completed the campaign and the mission “The Big Score” and should have lots of money) to do the missions. This will let you invest the most and also realize the most profits… Each character will have between $40 and $100 MILLION!

You also need to cycle through each of your characters before each mission so that you can invest all their money in the relevant stock. And, before you start a mission, make sure you quick save in case you make a mistake.

One final thing – if you need to advance some days in order for the stock price to move as desired, go to a safehouse and fall asleep. This will pass the time enough for your investments to spike. Then sell them!

So anyway, invest in the stock listed before each assassination mission and follow any other notes. Enjoy!

Assassination MissionStock to Purchase Before MissionNotes
Hotel AssassinationBetaPharmaceuticals (BAWSAQ)Sell Beta after the mission (80% profit). Then wait at least three days in-game and purchase Bilkington (LCN), then wait a week or more for it to rebound and sell it before the second mission (80% profit).
The Multi Target AssassinationDebonaire Cigarettes (LCN)Sell Debonaire after this second mission (80% profit) then purchase Redwood (LCN). Do not do the third mission yet, but instead advance the game for two days then sell Redwood (300% profit)
The Vice AssassinationFruit (BAWSAQ)Sell Fruit after the mission (50% profit)
The Bus AssassinationVapid (BAWSAQ)Invest in Vapid only AFTER you complete the mission. Do not do the fifth mission yet, but instead advance the game for two days then sell Vapid (100% profit)
The Construction AssassinationGoldCoast (LCN)Sell GoldCoast after the mission (80% profit)

BAWSAQ Stocks Tracker/Historic Data

Someone created this website which contains historic pricing information for all of the stocks on the BAWSAQ.

Helpful if you know how to use that sort of information (we aren’t claiming to…)!

High Frequency Stock Trading

This only works for LCN stocks and do make it worthwhile you need A LOT of money. For this reason it is good to do after you’ve finished all of Lester’s assassination missions, for example. You should also know that the prices of the LCN stocks will refresh every 45 seconds while you’re doing this.

  1. Look for the stock that has the lowest price (meaning you can buy more of it).
  2. Buy it (the maximum amount) and then immediately save your game. Don’t muck around when doing this (you will have 45 seconds or less).
  3. Once saved then check the stock by pretending to purchase more. Provided you stay on the “purchase more stock page” the price will constantly refresh for you.
  4. If the stock price goes up, then save your game and repeat the steps above. If the stock price goes down then reload your initial save game and try again.

This can be a little annoying (having to wait through a lot of saving screens) but it can also be worthwhile provided you are investing a lot of money to begin with. The incremental changes won’t be massive (maybe a few cents per price change) but they add up if you have loads of money riding on it…

Insurance Company Stock Tip

Head out on a mission of destruction and then immediately put some money into AugeryInsurance stock (AUG). When you destroyed lots of cars by damaging them, it should have caused the stock price to go down. Then after a while (and given you’ve stopped destroying things) the stock should shoot right back up!

LCN Investing via Assassinations

Before the assassination missions below switch to each of your characters and then invest all your money in the company listed. That company will benefit from the assassination you’re about to carry out and your LCN stocks will rise in value.

  1. The Hotel Assassination – Betapharmasuticals
  2. The Multi Target Assassination – Debonaire
  3. The Vice Assassination – iFruit
  4. Construction Assassination – Gold Coast Development

LCN Stock Trading

When you’re playing GTA V there will always be one particular stock on the LCN market that fluctuates within a set range (well pretty much a set range).

If you can find that stock and know it’s range, then it’s just a matter of continuously trading it to make money! When it goes down into the bottom of the trading range, buy it. Then when it goes up to the top, sell it!

Note that the stock in question for your game will not be one affected by the Assassination Missions (ie Debonaire Cigarettes, Redwood or GoldCoast).

Radio Stock Tips

If you listen often to talk back radio stations then you’re more likely to hear about stock tips. If you do happen to hear something, load up on the stock being discussed to profit!

Stock Market – Buy Cheap and Sell High

Here’s a way to score some cheap stock and then also increase it’s value.

First simply shoot down a plane operated a by a particular company. The value of its shares should decrease. Then you buy up large.

After that, shoot down the planes of rivals to the first company that you now hold stock in. The value of the stocks should go back up!

Targeting Competing Companies and Stock Market Money Making

When you do anything in Grand Theft Auto V that effects a company (like robbing a bank or gas station, or blowing up a plane) then its stock price will usually decrease to an extent (the more stuff you do to that company the lower it’s price will go).

Anyway, the price of stock in competitors of whatever company you targeting should also go up! So combining the two we have this list here. It shows which two companies are competitors of each other. So if you’re going to target FlyUS and take out a few planes you should buy AirEmu stock (and vice-versa).

Tinkle Stock Tip

Ideally this is best done later in the game when you have serious cash to invest…

Gio insurance car accident

  1. First get all your characters to invest in Tinkle (TNK) on the BAWSAQ.
  2. Then head to Hitch Lift 1 using Michael as your character and you’ll see a guy to pick up.
  3. You need to take him to the Airport and along the way he’ll tell you about a particular stock that is going to increase in value.
  4. $Profit$

Trading Days and Advancing Time

Each trading day on the stock market begins at 8am (except weekends), so if you are advancing time, then make sure you check it at 8am each day. Advancing time via sleeping will put your forward 8 hours.

And if you want to advance time more quickly/efficiently, you don’t have to actually save. Instead just go head into the save screen when at a bed and then exit. This is enough to advance time.Band 9 car insurance
