GTA 5 Stock Market Tips & Cheats

The Stock Market in Grand Theft Auto 5 is a great place to make some extra money and there are some events in the game that can see you instantly increase your funds or lose a lot of them. Since we all want more and never less, I have decided to share with you some GTA 5 stock market tips and a cheat/exploit that hasn’t been confirmed yet, but which is clearly worth trying. Beware, there are MANY SPOILERS ahead!

Since the easy way is always the best way to go, I will start by sharing the GTA 5 stock market cheat with you:

Right after performing your first heist (or whenever you have a large chunk of money), invest them all in one company (you can go for the cheapest on the market), save the game and exit. Go to your console’s time, set the date 1 month or 1 year ahead and then log back in to the game. Apparently, the stock market will have changed and you can instantly get rich. This has only been reported on a few occasions and is not yet confirmed. If you try it and it works, let us know by commenting below!

Now back to some real GTA V stock market tips and the best way to make more money in Grand Theft Auto 5 (all courtesy of Cyfun from the GTA Forums):

“Vangelico heist:

Sell anything you have invested in them before this. Afterward, wait til it bottoms out around $35/share before buying any. Not sure if there’s a competing gem company to invest in before-hand, didn’t see one.

LifeInvader prototype swap mission:

Sell anything you’ve invested in them before this mission cause it’ll tank badly. And I wouldn’t bother ever investing in them again, as I tried when it bottomed out but it never really recovered.

Bilkinton/Betta Assassination mission (I think it’s called Hotel Assassination):

Sell anything you have invested in Bilkington. Lester mentions he invested heavily in Betta, but I didn’t see them in the LCN. Are they somewhere else? I also noticed DollarPills tank as well. Once Bilkington bottoms out after the mission, though (the low for me was around $120/share), feel free to invest in them again as it spikes up again.

Redwood/Debonaire (Multi-Assasination mission):

Before you even start this mission, sell anything you have invested in Redwood, and invest everything you’ve got into Debonaire. Don’t do it during the mission cause there’s a tight timer. And be sure and not to forget doing this for ALL THREE CHARACTERS. I was in a hurry and only did it for Franklin. Debonaire’s stock will go from about $200 to about $400. When the mission is over, wait a good few minutes as the stock value will continue to rise. Mine eventually peaked at $399.42, so go ahead and sell when it gets to that point.

Dockyards secret government device mission:

Sell anything you have in Merriweather before this mission as it’ll dive a bit.”

And these are our GTA 5 stock market tips that should help you make (or at least save) some real money in the game. Do you have other tips to share? Let us know in the comment section below!

    Shouldn't I buy stock on the other security companies, since the merriweather will go down? Just like the redwood mission.

    After "Legal Trouble" with Solomon Richards, FlyUS will tank. Invest then, and it will recover after "Meltdown"

    Debonaire/Redwood: you can make money coming and going off the Multi-Target Assassination. Buy all the Debonaire you can before the mission; wait for it to spike and then sell. But wait, there's more! While Debonaire has been skyrocketing, Redwood has fallen to about a third of its normal value- as soon as you sell your Debonaire, put it all into Redwood and after a couple of days it will have rebounded, for a ~300% return.
