Many people that I know invest not to be rich, but simply hoping to be able to retire one day. Likewise, my main goal of investment is to retire.
Naturally, I am curious to know how I will be able to retire. More specifically, how much do I need to invest annually? What rate of return do I need? When I can retire?
To answer these questions, I decided to build a
simple simulator. Basically, it assumes that to retire, I need a passive income which comes from the dividends of my investments, and that I will invest some money annually at a certain rate of return until I retire.
Based on current estimation, I would be able to retire within the next 5-7 years.

this simulator to see if you are on track to your expected retirement or do you need to increase the amount of money you invest regularly.

Likewise, if you are an entrepreneur, you should hold safe bonds since your career ...

Today, I would like to share a few "invisible" feature updates that have been made recently. 1) Desktop view on mobile phones As mobile phone screens become larger, there have been requests to view the standard desktop view ...
