Re: Beta Testing Siamond

The multi-tab idea for the various simulations is terrific, love it. SMALL REQUEST: 1. Display a small "x" button for each Sim, allowing to (individually) get rid of it. So far, each simulation is additive, it would be great to be able to only keep the ones you want on the display. 2. Rem...

Re: Beta Testing Siamond

BUG/REQUEST: I don't quite understand those constraints: "Start Year must be less than End Year. End Year must be less than current year. Total span of years must be > simulation period." Why not allow the end year to be equal to the start year? Why not allow an arbitrary range of years? ...

Re: Beta Testing Siamond

I never thought about it before, must be the new way of positioning the various fields, but the label "Yearly Spending" really makes little sense whenever anything variable happens on the spending (e.g. no inflation adjustment, variable method, etc). REQUEST: change the "Yearly Spend...

Re: Beta Testing Siamond

I tried again, and using default parameters, the same thing occurs. I have a bit of a suspicion that the portfolio value by the end of the year is displayed, instead of the portfolio value at the beginning of the year - not sure though. The graphs ARE the end of year portfolio numbers, do you think...

Re: Beta Testing Siamond

The spend for the year is really the *budgeted* spend for the year (therefore $40k with default settings), but it is not withdrawn yet (I tend to think of it as: we do the math on Jan 1st, and budgeted money is withdrawn and moves to a checking/savings account on Jan 2nd). On Jan 1st of the 2nd yea...

Re: Extra income vs Savings

I think that we should probably keep "Spending" as the metric that is shown upfront (like the graph) since that is more relatable, but I will include "withdrawal" in the CSV file and for use in calculating the year-to-year numbers. Well, I think you need both in the CSV file. Bu...

Re: Extra income vs Savings

I am actually saying that if someone needs to spend $40k to survive will indeed *spend* $40k, but will *withdraw* $20k (if SS covers $20k). So yes, I am indeed suggesting to carefully separate the withdrawal math from the spending math. I totally appreciate your desire for simplicity, but there are ...
