All,I previously posted this in the Tax Strategies board, http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=18255265but it was suggested to try the post here to get broader input I had a couple questions about Money Market Mutual Funds.I was reading another post directed to the page: http://www.ibcdata.com/mfs/tables.htm1) when considering which to choose - should I look at theshortest Maturity days vs the highest yields ?Does the shotest maturity day period mean that the interste is postedat the end of that period (ie: a 32 day fund posts interest every 32 days)?2) which yields should I consider: 7- day OR 30-day or neither ?3) how do you know whether to choose a tax-free or taxable.any simple determination? it was suggested that if I am in 38.6% tax bracket, I should use the tax-free. I am in the 30% bracket.(Over 65K, but under 90K)4) with regard to earning interest, how does a Money Market Account vary from a Money Market Mutual Fund---?I know that a a MMA is like a 'high interest bearing savings acct', and that a MMMutal Fund 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 thefirst choice before a MMMF....or vice versa?Thanks for your input.Nubian
