About 6-9 months ago, or maybe longer, when a money market fund broke the buck in Europe, I and others mentioned the fact and warned people. It was an AXA fund, the the company made up the loss. Probably you can find the posts on this board and the Retire Early board and maybe a few others.

I changed my default fund at TDAmeritrade to a fund that invests only in treasuries at that time. TDAmeritrade uses the Reserve funds, but I do not remember if I was in the one that just lost money or not.
