The total amount of assets invested in Rydex Money Market Funds hit $360 million last week, a new multi-decade low. When investors are in confident mood, they have little interest in holding cash and instead prefer to put capital at risk in the stock market. Only during periods of volatility are investors tempted to sell risk and move into cash. This was clearly evident during the fourth quarter of 2018 when the stock market corrected sharply. Assets in Rydex Money Market Funds jumped +64% from $415 million to $679 million over the same period. The recent surge off the December 2018 lows has certainly captured the attention of the crowd. As stock markets rallied, assets in the Rydex Money Market Funds have collapsed again. There is no fear today and little need to hold cash. Investors have placed all their chips on the table in anticipation of new all-time highs ahead.
