Re: logged in but simulation output does not reflect years

The default simulation does show up to 2014... it may be hard to hover over the graph to highlight the exact one, but here is a screenshot of me doing so.

Re: not taking the start and end year

If you only want to show 1 specific set of years (say, a 30yr cycle with data between 1900-1929), you want to use the "Single Simulation Cycle" under the "Investigate" section.

Re: Historical Data - Specific Years: one year too many

Bah. I've had this bug before in testing.

I've been swamped with work and another webdev project I'm working on. I'll be working on cFIREsim bugs this weekend.

Thanks for the tip Siamond, hope all is well in retirement for you! :)

Re: Download sim file: data/calculation questions

Just wanted to let you know that I've been indisposed for the last few days. I'll check on this on Monday. I will say that I have spent MANY hours doing exactly what you're doing... trying to get the autofill on excel to add up the numbers exactly. It's possible that an inflation bug has mucked up t...

Re: Original VPW Bug?

Longinvest, I believe the difference comes in the fact that I can't exactly replicate the RATE function in PHP. Hopefully this is easy to follow, but here is the code to determine spending for Year 1. The pow() function is putting 1+rate to the power of NPER. $defaultRate = (($variables['percentequi...

Re: Download sim file: data/calculation questions

Thanks a lot, I got the Shiller CPI data and came up with the matching numbers for the downloaded data. (Not sure but I think the Shiller table might have a minor error in it. For real stock price he divided by the given year CPI, but for real earnings and real dividends he divides by the subsequen...

Re: Download sim file: data/calculation questions

I assume these numbers would be the same regardless of any changes to input parameters so long as I'm using CPI adjustment for inflation. My first question is, could you point me to the source for the annual inflation (I'm using the CPI option) data you're using? I couldn't find anything that seeme...

Hmm, you're right. I just got a couple of blank CSV's. I'll look into it, thanks!

Re: investment portfolio allocations not working

I am having this problem as well. I am unable to enter percentages in the portfolio allocation section. Using an IPad Air, last year's model, haven't updated to 8.1. I'll have to test on my old iPad, but is it that you can't SEE the input field boxes for allocation, or you can't click on it for wha...

Re: Monte Carlo and Maximum Spending for Success - Answers V

I will be the first to admit that the math behind the Monte Carlo simulations is hard to understand, and that part of this site is not my top priority... but I don't think that these results are totally out of line. That last one is definitely a bug, but I think the other ones fall within 1 standard...
