Entering a 60/40 Wold Stock World Bond portfolio

If one just wants to change the "couch potato" example but go to
60% equities
40% bonds
.14% fees
(for example Vanguard LifeStrategy Mod Growth fund VSMGX)
How would one do that?

It appears that you cannot customize your portfolio to have world stocks and world bonds. The data built into FIREcalc is for US. As the note on that page says:

(The choices available are those for which we have suitable historical data. When we obtain more data, we will add additional options.)

Having said that, i think you can still use it to get a pretty good general idea of your possibility of success or failure, using a 60% US stock and 40% US bond.
