When is the best time to retire—during a bull market or a BEAR market? Studies show that every one percent gain in the S & P increases the likelihood of those considering retirement to take the plunge and retire, by a factor of 2.5%. In other words, hard data shows that a person on the verge of retirement is 25% more likely to go ahead and retire if the S & P is up by 10%. If it is up by 20% the likelihood of deciding to retire rises by 50%. So, most people choose a bull market to retire into. Here’s the problem—retiring near the end of a bull market increases the risk of income failure in retirement-- dramatically! On today's show, we'll share data on just how risky it is to retire into an aging bull market, especially with these low interest rates.
