The Boston Globe writes "What's the best place to stash your savings?". It says, "Just as Americans are saving more money, interest rates on traditional savings vehicles have hit rock bottom." The article compares "bank savings accounts," "money market bank accounts," "certificates of deposit," "U.S. bonds," and "money market mutual funds". On money funds, it says, "Unlike bank accounts, your money isn't insured. But money market funds generally invest in US treasuries and other relatively safe, short-term investments, so it's very rare to lose money. And you can cash out any time, making it a convenient place to park cash. But the interest rates are currently meager, even compared with bank accounts."
