Managing Your Cash
Abstract: Cash includes not just paper money and coins but investments that are easily liquidated into cash. In this lesson plan, you will learn the advantages and disadvantages of the traditional deposit account and how you can use it in your pursuit of wealth. We also cover certificates of deposit and the various money market investments. Though money market investments -- commercial paper, Treasury bills, etc. -- are not well known to the average investor, they make up the backbone of money market deposit accounts and money market mutual funds, which are commonly used to park cash until it is needed for large purchases.
