I'd like to understand more about the risks of a money market fund you allude to. I keep my emergency fund in an Insured Money Market Account at the credit union. This account gives me acceptable interest (4.25%) and is insured. What can go wrong? I know I can get more interest in CDs but I like the liquidity of just doing an electronic transfer to the checking account if I need it.
Thanks,

Tredos
