I was buying stocks on the LCN stock exchange and i bought shares BUT when I bought the shares and finished the process it said that my portfolio is empty and i just wasted 30 million. What the happened?

This does seem to be a common bug as seen in the GTA rockstar community, there does seem to be the occasional fix that buying a small number of shares that disappear means that it wont happen again, and some say that its avoidable by not using the escape key to quit the browser, however I am having difficulty finding any kind of official Rockstar support on the matter.


It’s a bug but I found a way to get around it, quick save before purchase, by 1 share of whatever your buying, check portfolio it will be empty, then by how ever many you want the second purchase will appear, you will lose the single one you bought but not a big deal since it’s just 1 share :)


If you haven't already auto saved, you can go to your GAME settings >then go to LOAD GAME>then go to the last time you AUTO SAVED. If this puts you back to around 30 mil, then go to the debonair stock and only buy about 5 stocks, those will disappear, but after that you can invest in it all you want.


I had this issue too, I ended up buying 1 of the cheapest stock and lost it. Then I was able to buy stock and keep them.


Are you using a pirated version of GTA 5? This is something that happens with pirated versions, info in the discussions on this Reddit thread on pirated GTA V stock issues.

Always buy ONLY 1 stock when you want to invest. It won't be there in your portfolio, but the second time it will be there. If you see it in your portfolio than you can safely buy more stock from the same company.

    Also, we can't assume that this is a pirated game without the OP stating otherwise. I'm fairly confident I've seen this happen to me in GTA and I own the actual game, which is why I never used the Stock Market.

    "You must be using a pirated version of GTA 5. This is something that happens in pirated versions." This is not True as I had it happen on a legit steam owned copy of the game. Mar 3, 2019 at 22:06
  • This seems to go away when logged into the RGSC.
