For unknown reasons the BAWSAQ market is unavailable to some players and available to others at seemingly random times. It also may go down for a player who previously had it up for seemingly no reason. This is most likely because the BAWSAQ does simulated trading for GTA Online and Story Mode, and the simulated trading happens on Rockstar's online network; The BAWSAQ most likely becomes unavailable when the online network suffers from cloud network errors. This is usually temporary, and the BAWSAQ becomes available again after online network issues are resolved which usually happens within around 4-8 realtime hours.
