Short-term funds show stress as default looms
FILE - In this Thursday, Dec. 4, 2008 file photo, a man walks past a Fidelity Investments office in the Financial District of downtown Boston. On Wednesday, Oct. 9, 2013, the nation's largest manager of money market mutual funds said that it no longer holds any U.S. government debt that comes due around the time the nation could hit its borrowing limit. Money market portfolio managers at Fidelity Investments have been selling off their government debt holdings over the last couple of weeks, said Nancy Prior, president of Fidelity's Money Market Group. While Fidelity expects the debt ceiling issue to be resolved, the Boston-based asset manager said it is taking steps to protect investors. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa)
