"where do you park the funds you are waiting to invest? In money markets? In stocks?"

Personally I prefer treasuries 6 to 18 months out as a parking place. CDs a year out may be an option for some people with less than $100k looking for a parking spot. SHY may be an option with its short duration.

Note the impact of friday's news on values across the bond market.
IMO, with US starting to show some signs that economic and job growth is real and some signs that inflation may be around the corner, this may not be time to be in longer durations because of the impact that rate increase will have on price.
