This calculator easily answers the question "If I save 'X' amount for 'Y' months what will the value be at the end?"
The user enters the "Periodic Savings Amount" (amount saved or invested every month); the "Number of Months" and the "Annual Interest Rate" or the annual rate of return one expects to earn on their investments.
The calculator quickly creates a savings schedule and a set of charts that will help the user see the relationship between the amount invested and the return on the investment. The schedule can be copied and pasted to Excel, if desired.
The investment term is always expressed in months.
60 months = 5 years
120 months = 10 years
180 months = 15 years
240 months = 20 years
360 months = 30 years
