Not sure if should post here, if not please advise.
had a couple questions about Money Market Funds.
1) when considering which to choose - should I look at the
shortest Maturity days vs the highest yields ?

2) which yields to consider: 7- day OR 30-day ?

3) how do you know whether to choose a tax-free or taxable.
any simple determination?

4) how does a Money Market Account vary from a Fund---with regard
to earning interest?

I know that a a MMA is like a 'high interest bearing savings acct',
and that a MMF is a mutual fund that invests in short-term instruments.

What if I don't have more than 1500 to deposit, should a MMA be the
first choice before a MMF....or vice versa?
