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

FWIW, I'm not going to try and track this down 100% quite yet, because I'm about to release a completely new version of the site that is open source. You can access it here: http://104.131.112.188/dev/input.php but I'm constantly working on it, so don't expect 100% working stuff. The year-to-year ga...

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

Thanks for the response! I added some columns to the "chapt26" spreadsheet, "Data" worksheet (Robert Shiller's data), where column B has the Market Price that you refer to, and Column C has the Dividends. For 1871, I do get the values to match per your example, which matches wha...

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spend for the year is really the *budgeted* spend for the year (therefore $40k with default settings), but it is not withdrawn yet (I tend to think of it as: we do the math on Jan 1st, and budgeted money is withdrawn and moves to a checking/savings account on Jan 2nd).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

Re: Original VPW Bug?

longinvest,

Fixing this bug was indefinitely put aside, because of me working on a total re-work of the site. When the total re-work comes out (I was hoping this week), we can check on how VPW is looking.

Re: Beta Testing Siamond

Hm, I thought the Open Source project moved to a Jan 1st kind of math? BUG: using the inflation-adjusted simplest simulation, I would have expected the first data point of any cycle to be (portfolio=$1M minus $40k; spending = $40k). And yet, this is not what happens... Ok, I'll stop there - can't g...

Re: Extra income vs Savings

Firstly, there is definitely some sort of bug in the legacy cFIREsim in regards to withdrawals if you select a date to retire that is in the future. I'm not sure if that is what you mean. Secondly, I'd like to argue that for simplicity's sake there is NOT 2 different types of income/savings. In the ...

Re: Beta Testing Siamond

Ohhh, you're right about logging in. I was messing with the database stuff right before leaving on the weekend. Oops.

I'll fix it tonight ;)
