GTA 5 Stock Market tips to earn big money PART II

Right, so in the first part of the stock market guide, we explained how the stock markets work in GTA 5, the different types and how each of them work. In case you missed it, check it out here.

The article also talked about how you as the player can play the stock market in a passive way. Although it is good enough for your average gamer who’s happy with a few thousands of dollars, we get the funny feeling that it doesn’t strike a chord with the rest of you hard-core players.

Please pay no attention to this guide. What he is saying is complete rubbish. It doesn't work that way. You cannot directly influence stock prices by destroying the competition. The only way that works is within the small amount of missions that you do for lester. Those will temporarily alter some prices. But this guy is saying you can go out any time and do this. It is not possible. This myth has been debunked for a very long time. I'm surprised he even bothered posting this now that 99% of the people play GTAV know this isn't true.

So again, he doesn't know what he is talking about.

I've been doing my own research on this. I personally haven't been able to confirm anything, but I have a theory.

I believe if you set your phone to "Sleep Mode" it freezes the LCN by only letting it fluctuate within a couple of dollars (out of 50+ samples - no stock exceeded more than $2 of movement between the lowest and highest sample; note this is 50+ * the number of stocks on the LCN -- I was bored and curious). I've searched high and low on the internet to see if anyone else has confirmed this but haven't found any information.

Lester's missions move the market because (1) they are scripted and (2) any time you start a side mission, mission, or call a contact it takes the phone (and game) out of "Sleep Mode".

Dump every dollar you earn into Pisswater. Right from the start. Let it sit there. Dont buy any property. Only pull it out when you do Lester's assassination missions and save them for the end of the game.

I bought Pisswater at $12 a share. That stock has Never gone down, only up. I sold it a few days ago for $144 per share. combined with Lesters missions, Each character had over 3.5 Billion. However the max you can have is 2.1Billion.

And this was all after I slightly botched the first heist and lost a good chunk by not paying for a good Gunner.

One last thing, actually its the most important, when you do the Lester missions, each mission cause one stock to rise and one to fall. Both stocks always rebound. Meaning, as soon as the one stock peaks and you sell it, find and invest in the one that dropped. This will give you an even bigger payout then the stock that rose initially.

When I was done with Lesters missions I had about 750 million. Then it all went into Pisswater for 3 weeks and grew like crazy.
