Joining us now on the line is and targets in from the Wall Street Journal get a debunk some retirement myths and thanks for coming on us Iraq. In what is the conventional rule when it comes to the safe withdrawal rate for a retirement account. Righted the conventional rule listed when you retire ticket balance they have a million dollars. And withdraw 4%. In your first your retirement which could be 40000 dollars. And then in subsequent years you can give yourself a breeze for inflation as a statistic that 40000 dollars in rated up moderated and placed. But what kind of problems do you see with this line of thinking. Right had a couple of researchers who were very content. You know very influential and retirement state. Really very sound credentials. And on it and people are concerned that you know in this current era where dock there at relatively high valuations and bond yields are pretty low they you know looking at the teacher that we can't expect. Teacher returned to necessarily be as good they have been in the past. That they'll be cut at rivers and mean reversion for the next you know first for certain number of years to come. Bill that they are brining in numbers looking at you know how he is at 4% rule. And given current valuation and there and analysis indicates that. 4% is no longer than they have mounted that hate spending amount would be more like 3%. Now when we talk about safe spending and out is this to be able to maintain this with no questions going forward or is this even you know you can run a declining balance. And and still be a kind of factor in on on that front. Wait did the what what 4% ruler of what Terry I think is 50% rule says is that. You can on peak out that initial 4% or 3% over thirty year retirement and not run average this. I am not. Even in the worst conditions that he's had in the past the 4% analysts held up. OK so this is saying hey if you really want to guarantee you're not and I guarantee but come as close to guaranteeing as possible the 3% numbers better than four tonight. Exactly and the current climate 3% better than 4% for that you know that that's safety. What kind of asset allocation were they looking at when he came to these projections. OK questions that they were looking at. What they called balanced portfolio which they'd find B. Is something about 50% stocks 50% on an I think it did what they found held true within that forty to 60% equity range or maybe even slightly wider than that but the ideas that sort of them make that. Stocks and bonds. So if if you're someone who's listening right now and trying to save for retirement did they give any guidelines as far as hey how much you need to save per year on a percentage basis to get near Kennedy where you need to go. Yeah I mean not that that's a tough fighting mean often you know what people uses several of summer something like. You know received ten times your final salary before retiring. At that they actually continent that's sort of the dangers approach because especially when incredible market did. In just by the fact that the market because. Your talents it in the cola says it intended date maybe. At that endangers people. Saving for that number and then. And the market inflate their balance they think look at arrived at the number I can update me I can retire early you know it doesn't take into account the fact that. When the market is up strongly you know tenure in that situation where some kind of cracks and might be. Might be more likely and in the coming months or years and it's impossible to forecast the market and liked valuations can dictate what happens down the road. So anyway it's it's hard to know. Make it shouldn't really happy with that number in mind and Billy Moore that you should caves consistent out annually. In over you know sixty your extended career. Good and thanks for the time. And artisan from the Wall Street Journal talking about retirement savings you must start when you're young you know you guys are thirty and you know your ball saving for retirement but they'll be years potentially between now and and you actually retire. Where you may not be able to afford to save as much as you can today because your pain tuitions. Or you're out of a job where you know like things happen like happens get a Wally cans and sock it away. In your early years because if you can start saving for retirement when you're 2223. When you first graduate couch right yet no family no expenses. You know and and people resentment I can tell you the bio children I would harp on them and they took their first jobs tonight. Help them fill out their paper workers say when he mean you've taken 10% of my pay for retirement I don't wanna do that I'm 22 years old. And it was always an argument you know loose with the kinsey got a star when your 22 because by starting when you're 22. In that still work and when you're 72 you might wanna work when you're 72 healing not. Now it's it's it's the beauty of compounding you let the market do the work for you so that you don't have to.
