Re: Jeff Brown's favorite financial calculator: FIRECalc

I use both T.Rowe Price and FIRE calculators using the same set of data/info. I wanted a 99% confidence level. T. Rowe Price's calculator says that it is attainable with a 60/40 (Stock/Fixed income) portfolio but it is achievable with a 40/60 mix. FIRECalc, in contrary, indicates a higher rate of success as the equity portion of the portfolio increases. I think FIRECalc is more credible.

May we live in peace and harmony and be free from all human sufferings.

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
