Astoria Bank Increases Intermediate and Long Term CD Rates
Astoria Bank CD rates were recently increased on the bank's intermediate and long term certificates of deposit. This change is counter to what most banks are doing these days. Many banks are increasing their short term CD rates because short term bond yields are moving higher while intermediate and long term yields remain flat.
CD rates at Astoria Bank were increased on two, three, and four year certificates of deposit. The largest increase was on three year certificates of deposit. Three year CD rates were increased from 1.04 percent with a yield of 1.05 percent to 1.24 percent with a yield of 1.25 percent.
The 20 basis point increase moved Astoria Bank from 20th place to 15th place on our 3 year rate list. The best three year CD rate in our database is 30 basis points higher at 1.54 percent with a yield of 1.55 percent. Live Oak Bank currently has the best three year rate.

Astoria Bank's five year CD rate was increased from 1.39 percent with a yield of 1.40 percent to 1.49 percent with a yield of 1.50 percent. The new five year CD rate moves Astoria Bank up from 18th place to 17th place on our 5 year rate list.

This Past Week's CD Rate Changes
Eight banks and one credit union in our database changed some of their CD rates this past week. Most of the CD rate changes were higher, which was nice to see. EverBank CD rates were changed more than once this past week, the most recent changes are at the top of the rate list below.
There is some good news regarding bank CD rates possibly moving higher in the near future. Despite September's employment numbers being slightly weaker than expected, CNBC reported the probability of a fed rate hike moved higher this morning. CNBC is basing their report on the CME Group's FedWatch Tool. The tool is used to track the market's expectation of a rate hike. Before the employment report, the probability of a December rate hike was at 63.9 percent. After Friday's report was released, it moved up to 70.2 percent.
If there is a December rate hike, it will most likely be 25 basis points. This hike might entice banks to increase their short term and intermediate term CD rates. If there is a rate hike, we won't see all banks and credit union increase their CD rates. It's likely that some online banks with the highest current CD rates will increase their rates.
The best CD rates on our 1 year certificates of deposit rate list are currently at 1.30 percent. A 0.25 percent fed fund rate hike might send the best 1 year rates towards 1.50 percent. It's been several years since we've seen 1 year rates as high as 1.50 percent.
This past week's CD rate changes are listed below.

Recent CD Rate Changes Are Mostly Lower
Bond yields across the globe have tumbled since U.K. voters voted yes to leave the European Union. Yields on German and Japanese bonds are negative, so investors are paying to hold those bonds instead of receiving interest. This week, long term U.S. bonds hit new record lows. 30 year yields have fallen to 2.09 percent and 10 year yields fell to 1.34 percent.
While there isn't a direct link between bond yields and CD rates, banks are taking a cue from lower bond yields to lower CD rates and other deposit rates. The majority of recent CD rate changes have been lower. Another factor that will keep downward pressure on deposit rates is the Fed deciding to not increase the fed funds rate.
The U.K. vote to leave the European Union has created so much uncertainty, it's very unlikely the Fed will increase the fed funds rate anytime in 2016. This is bad news for savers because there is a direct correlation between the fed funds rate and deposit rates.
On a positive note, lower long term bond yields will mean lower mortgage rates. 30 year mortgage rates today are averaging 3.39 percent, only 8 basis points from an all-time low set in 2012.

Slew of CD Rate Changes from Banks Prior to the Fed Funds Rate Increase
There has been a slew of CD rate changes from many different banks in our database this past week. A total of six banks changed some, if not all, of their CD rates. Only one bank, EverBank, changed a couple of their rates since the Federal Open Market Committee voted to increase the fed funds rate by 25 basis points.
It still stands to reason that several online banks that are offering the top online CD rates will increase their rates in the coming weeks. Major banks were quick to increase the prime rate they offer on loans but announced they wouldn't increase deposit rates.
The prime rate was increased at these banks:
Deutsche Bank, Citibank, U.S. Bancorp, JPMorgan Chase, HSBC, KeyCorp, M&T, BMO Harris Bank, SunTrust, Huntington Bancshares, PNC, Bank of America and BB&T.
It's no surprise these bigger banks are not going to increase deposit rates. They were offering very low rates because they have no interest in attracting deposits. A fed funds rate increase of 0.25 percent isn't going to change their rates. Listed below are all the certificate of deposit rate changes this past week.
Astoria Bank Increases CD Rates Again
Astoria Bank has increased their certificate of deposit rates for the second time in less than a week. On November 11th, Astoria Bank increased CD rates on 6 different CD accounts. Today's rate increases are on the bank's 18 month, 2 year, and 5 year CDs.
Listed below are the most current CD rate changes at Astoria Bank.
