    Didn't a large group of us do that a few years back??? It put BlackRock in a tailspin and because of it we lost our daily IFT's.
    May the force be with us.

What most of them don't realize is that they are now losing money when they sit in those money market funds. Also, if the financial institute ever collapses, they can kiss that money goodbye as well because they aren't guaranteed. Below are the returns for the funds available in my fiancee's 401K. The money market fund has had a negative return for the last several years.
    Thanks IT. Very informative.
