I've been watching rates over the last couple of months and they're absolutely moving up.
For this reason, I've been keeping handy cash investments short. Like 6 month to 1 year duration.
I think that in the near future, rates will go even higher.

Well, yes, I agree. However, I don't plan to purchase any CD longer than a year in duration because I am now getting 4 % in the MM at Countrywide Bank. But I can do better with some of what I have in the MM (the part not needed for emergencies) if I put 10k at a time into Cd's as they creep up.

Does anyone see a significant flaw in this logic?
