It really depends on what you think "cash" is. US Dollars?Thanks to inflation, having you "cash" in a "safe" 10-month savings account could actually mean a net loss to earnings power.Unless it is one of the asset classes you are considering, I'd suggest parking your money in an international currency - specifically precious metals. That will protect you from inflation risk. An easy way to do this is through Exchange-traded shares through a discount broker; you'll pay ten bucks in commission or so and the money will be all of one, maybe two business days away with a wire transfer option.Right now that points me toward SLV silver shares, mostly because silver is trading at a much lower ratio than historically.Of course, ten months isn't a long time, and silver has some risk. You'll want to do your own research.But don't kid yourself: Due to inflation, "parking" your cash in a savings account also creates it's own kind of risk. What was that song by Rush about Freewill? "If you choose not to decide you still have made a choice"?Fool on, buddy. :-)
