Re: Maximizing Short Term Yield
Same here with the short term corporate account, thats my short term slush fund. I also have an account with ingdirect that pays 2% with no fees. There was a lengthy discussion on the short term corp fund with few if any dissenters that it should be safe for a cash fund alternative.
If you decide to go safer and open the ingdirect account, find someone here that already has one and have them refer you, then you'll both get a cash bonus.
Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.
