I've followed this advice successfully since 1995. In fact, I don't even keep an emergency fund - I have the largest home equity line of credit possible, and I use it as my emergency fund, allowing me to keep my emergency $s invested

Is an Emergency fund of 3 - 6 months in a Money Market Account necessary? I believe this is quite a bit of money that could be put into the Stock Market. Please advise.
