Pixy,<<Gathering the data to try 18-month trading models would be a horrendous undertaking...>>I concur, but trying to do it with historical data would be like trying to sprint before crawling. What about conceptually and prospectively using the following assumptions (or whatever you think may be more representative):Time period: 10 yearsAnnual Contributions: $4,000 at first of yearAnnual Dividend Yield: 1.5% Capital Appreciation: 16%/yr or 24%/ 18 monthsMarginal Tax Rate: 28%Capital Gains Rate: 20%I'd try it myself, but I can barely use a word processor let alone a spreadsheet. Just curious
