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.
Go try out
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.

Therefore I have changed the definitions of Total Cost and also ...
How to Install StocksCafe App
Regularly, users would independently request for an iOS app to be built for StocksCafe. Due to limited resources, it is unlikely I can satisfy this request in the near future. However, a recent feature request made by a Friend of StocksCafe actually made me realize that I could create a pseudo app for StocksCafe. It is to simply create a shortcut (which looks like an app) on your phone that will start ...
