Projections on FIRE
We have 4.x years till we FIRE. The timing is partly due to Company Health Insurance @ 55... So FIRE sooner is not likely unless DW or I get an buyout. Anyway, I have been doing some projections. If we could get a 5% compunded rate, we would easily be at our target amount.
Right now, our allocation is 70/30. I am intending to move it to 60/30/10 (Equity/Bond/Cash) by 55 (RE).
What would you do to ensure that market fluctuations do not interrupt your plans to retire in 4.x years?
Do you think the 40% allocation is intermediate bonds/cash is enough. I was wondering if I should not be @ 50% equity, 40% bonds, 10% cash (about 2.5 years expense).
I would like to keep the average compounded rate at least at 8%. According to VG, a 50/50 mix would do that. But on the otherhand, I would like to squeeze another .5% or 1% if possible. I am struggling a little with the best approach to handle the volitility, yet not get too conservative.
