Re: Beta Testing Siamond

I always thought that the "starting year" notation in the previous version was more confusing, and actually have received a few comments to support that in the past. I think an "overall data range" is less confusing. We'll see. If enough people complain, it's an easy change.

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: non-recurring income not included in calculations

Well, by debugging in the browser, I already found the issue and the fix... but I can't update it from work. Again, I will report back later (maybe 5pm EST).

Re: non-recurring income not included in calculations

Hmm. It appears that non-recurring income AND spending is not showing up.

I'll log it on GitHub as an issue and fix it as soon as I get home from work. Check back for updates.

Thanks for reporting.

cFIREsim Open - Site Redesign

If you haven't been here in awhile, you'll notice that the site looks different. This is the result of the cFIREsim Open Source project. With the help of (as of today) 8 other contributors, we've redesigned the site to be faster and for the code to be more transparent. This will hopefully allow a de...

Re: Beta Testing Siamond

Also, I'm not sure what URL you've been trying, but I just updated the version at http://104.131.112.188/input.php with work I've done. Output graphs show up in tabs. Stats are there. Still trying to work through a bug in the output graphs. Things are getting closer.

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...

Ha. No problem. I've been fooled on Excel's "show only so many levels of precision" trick before myself.

Re: I'm trying to understand how arrive at the historical returns CFireSim uses

FireCalc (and thus cFIREsim) has always used the Dividend value of January of any given year for the yearly value. The Shiller Data set shows 1872.01 as 0.2633. Did you make that yearly version yourself?
