I think it does make sense to use the stock market, rather than a money market fund, as a short-term parking place for money But you also need to take into consideration fees. Index funds are mutual funds, so in some accounts you may get hit with a buy fee, whereas MM, frequently that is the designated hold spot, with no fees to move in/out. Number crunch to see if the amount of dollars justifies using the index instead of the MM (I know, it's a pain).Kristi
