Bug Report

In FIRECalc Classic there appears to be a bug where the results are always based on a "Percentage of your portfolio that is in stocks and stock funds" of 75%... regardless of the actual entry.* Changing that value and resubmitting doesn't affect the outcome and the "Display input data" link on the results always shows 75%.

I was wondering why my results looked so good at even 0% stock!

Re: Bug Report


I was playing around with FireCalc again a couple weeks ago, using the Classic because it fits my needs the best. I varied the percent of stock from 60% to 65%, solving for max withdrawal at 100% probability of success. I noticed then that there was no difference between those two allocations. I thought that was odd, but thought maybe it was a sweet spot, and I didn't have time to investigate further... a bad assumption on my part!

Re: Bug Report

Telly -- call in and rescind that resignation!

Sorry -- it's fixed now.
Often uninformed, seldom undecided.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. Mark Twain
