    That portfolio is definitely holding its own. I still question the purpose of the cash-equivalent money market fund. You can earn better than 0% with FDIC-guaranteed CDs or something similar.

    Oops. I didn’t update that number. It should have received a whopping $14 in interest for the year, giving it a return of .02%.

    I used the Vanguard Money Market Account for ease of tracking. I’m not recommending it.
