What is the money market fund preference?

In a ShareBuilder account, the Money Market Fund is one place where your uninvested cash is held, depending on your cash sweep preference. The money market fund we use is Dreyfus Government Money Market Fund (DGCXX).

Basically, if your cash sweep preference is set to Money Market Fund, all of your deposits get "swept" into the money market fund. Cash to pay for purchases and proceeds from sale transactions are transferred automatically from/to the fund on the settlement date.

To find the current annualized yield of this money market fund, go to our Pricing & Rates page and look for the Sweep Rates in-page tab.
