Expect money market mutual fund yields to fall three-quarters of a percentage point, to about 3.25%, within the next 30 days, says Peter Crane, president of Crane Data in Westboro, Mass. Money fund yields typically track the fed funds rate. It takes about a month for the funds' higher-yielding investments to mature, which the funds must then replace with new, lower-yielding ones. 2. In the words of Crane Data President Peter Crane, money market mutual fund rates are expected to decrease less than a point to 3.25%, within the month.

For instance, I did not find the work residence of Peter Crane relevant or the wording necessarily the appropriately precise level. II. 1. There Will Be Blood  and No Country for Old Men lead the pack with eight each after nominations were announced Tuesday morning in Hollywood.
