The decade of the nineteen-twenties was an era of great exhuberence and enthusiasm with strong parallels to today, and is often referred to as the roaring twenties. You should wait and do this mission only when the game forces you to as you will be able to maximize the cash you do have. A pair of missions for Michael called Legal Trouble and Meltdown which you must complete before you can finish the end of the game. After stocks have returned to normal sell all Bilkington stock when you think you can get the most out of it.
In this mission, you can manipulate the stock prices of Betta Pharmaceuticals (BET) and Bilkington (BIL) on the BAWSAQ exchange. Wait until changes have taken full effect and sell all of your AirEmu stock to purchase FlyUS stock. Wait till the market rebounds and sell all of your Redwood stock, approximately tripling your investment. The fourth Lester assassination mission has you manipulating the Vapid (VAP) stock on the BAWSAQ marketplace.
This assassination mission has you deflating the shares of Façade (FAC) in order to pump up the stock price of Fruit (FRT) on the BAWSAQ marketplace. After things have leveled off you should make somewhere around a 30% return, but given that it is a BAWSAQ stock this can vary. Thanks for the guide I had no idea that these things were connected, I love that they did it though, it definitely adds more realism into the game.
Yeah… the game gives you a general hint about things, but once you break it down you can really see just how much earning potential there is. First though, re-read the ‘Understanding the Stock Market’ section above for my full advice, but the problem might just be BAWSAQ itself. The BAWSAQ stock market isn’t just pulling data from the internet, it exists on the GTA5 servers. It’s always important when you’re manipulating the stock market that you save your game. GTA5 is far from a glitch free game and as written above, I’ve seen oddities happen with that particular manipulation even if it does usually work.
Given that you did see a dramatic stock change, there is an opportunity to manipulate that and make money however. I never really touched the stock market much in my first playthrough but this earning potential is insane… I know where I am focusing on from now on. I have just invested in Merryweather after finishing the game and for some reason it jumped from 7 to 4 million.. but then I loaded my game again and the shares has raised with 400! Doesn’t mather really, enjoying the game anyway ever since Libertycity gta 3 came on ps 2. Much has changed, can’t wait to play next gen.
