GTA V stock exchange influenced by global activity - inside the BAWSAQ and LCN

One way to make money in Grand Theft Auto V is via the stock exchange.

In GTA V there are two exchanges known as LCN and BAWSAQ. While the fluctuations on the LCN are governed entirely through offline gameplay and specific tasks, the BAWSAQ is influenced by global behaviour via the social club.

There are 40 companies listed on the exchange and the prices can change based on how players behave. For example, if there are a lot of people purchasing weapons from Ammu-nation, the share price of that company will rise.

Similarly, if one particular type of vehicle is being destroyed often -- an example being the Vapid motorcycle -- then shares in that company will drop. It sounds like a great way for groups to get together to help influence share prices!

Stay tuned for our GTA V review.
