I am not sure I understand how "upside investing" is supposed to work. For example:
1. What is the rate of return on stocks?
2. When I change the amount invested in stocks each year from 0 to 50k the floor value goes DOWN substantially for the first 5 years of the plan, and stays somewhat lower through the life of the plan.
3. In general how does changing the dates for starting, and stopping converting to safe assets impact the floor value?
4. How do I think about comparing the upside investing to the "standard" smoothing plan?
Sorry for all the questions, but as I said in the beginning I don't really understand the concept, or what it is I am hoping to discover through the use of upside investing?
