Nice answer.  I think that this is an opportunity to take inventory and plan ahead.  RCAs are still popular after all these years.  CD rate is too low to be considered.  Savings/MM are out of the question.  I-bonds are limited in amount.  Bond funds are fully of risks now and onward due to Fed's anticipated actions (reduction in bond purchases, etc.).  Stock market is getting real risky, hitting record high again.

I think RCA is still the best game in town.
