And BTW, Flagpole, the only mutual funds that come even close to this ROR for the last 5 years have 2-3X leverage or extremely high risk. That's why if you want to retire early as a millionaire or close to it, you invest in stocks, not mutual funds.
Nah. I can and will retire early, and others can do it too...on mutual funds. You don't need a HUGE return over time to be able to retire with a lot of money and "early".[/quote]
Just something to keep in mind, statistically, people that retire early tend to live 7 years less on average than those that retire at 65 or older.
