Money Market News


Money fund yields inched higher yet again last week -- the Crane 100 Money Fund Index (7-Day Yield) rose 3 more basis points to 3.60% in the week ended Friday, 12/2. Yields rose by 3 basis points the previous week and are up from 2.88% on Oct. 31 and 2.66% on Sept. 30. Yields should jump again and approach 4.0% by year end, if, as expected, the Fed hikes rates again (probably by 50 bps) on Dec. 14. The top-yielding money market funds have broken above 4.0% and should move towards 4.5% in coming weeks (see our "Highest-Yielding Money Funds" table above). Brokerage Sweep rates also moved higher as Fidelity increased its FDIC insured sweep rate to 1.94% from 1.57%, which lifted our Brokerage Sweep Intelligence average up from 0.40% to 0.43%.
