How much should your cash reserve be?
While you’re working, we recommend you set aside at least $1,000 for emergencies to
start and then build up to an amount that can cover three to six months of expenses.
When you’ve retired, consider a cash reserve that might help cover one to two years
of spending needs.
What does it mean to have cash reserves?
Cash reserves refer to the money a company or individual keeps on hand to meet
short-term and emergency funding needs. Short-term investments that enable customers
to quickly gain access to their money, often in exchange for a lower rate of return,
can also be called cash reserves.

The Federal Government, State Government and the Federal Reserve continue
to stimulate the United States of America Economy. The US economy created
over 1 million jobs in less than 90 days. This was absolutely awesome and was
unexpected. Critical to the Federal Reserve Fund Rate which was only increase
25 basis point. Keep in mind the US economy only need an estimated 98,000 jobs
creation per month to sustain the US economy.
This leaves the consumer continuing to tighten their budget because of inflation,
cutting spending, paying down debt, building cash reserves (the saving rate went up
in January 2023) investing more and earning more income.
The Federal Reserve will increase the Federal Fund Rate at the March 2023 meeting
maybe 75 basis points and increase the target rate to 5.75. This will be a bold
move for the Federal Reserve, but what choice do they have. It isn’t possible
to drive down inflation with a 25 bps increase. As a matter of FACT, 25 bps increase
will not stall out inflation. 50 bps would be a strong message to the economy, but
everyone want inflation to be in check and return to 2% year over year.
The Federal Reserve have a nightmare. They have been behind the curve. The Federal
Reserve have March 2023 to get it right.
