default allocation vs. LV & Corp Bond

It was easy to see when I was using the new FIRECalc that my success rate changed dramatically if I used my actual allocation vs. the default allocation. I am heavy on value oriented funds, and I will soon be trading my I-Bonds for corporate bond funds. It went from 53% success rate to 95.7% success rate by only changing the allocation from the default to what I have.

Just wonder what to make of it! I surely like the results.

I wonder if we could use FireCalc to tell us the optimum allocation for a given investment horizon.
