Top 2 Year CD Rate Now at 1.70 Percent
The top CD rates continue to move higher as the best 2 year CD rate hits 1.70 percent this week. 2 year CD rates at Connexus Credit Union take the top spot this week at 1.69 percent with a yield of 1.70 percent. Connexus has the best rate this week but two banks are right on the credit union's tail.
Northern Bank Direct, EverBank, and Popular Direct have the second best 2 year rate this week at 1.64 percent with a yield of 1.65 percent. We have another three-way tie for third place, My e-BAnC by BAC Florida Bank, TAB Bank, and VirtualBank all have a current 2 year rate of 1.61 percent with a yield of 1.62 percent.
Not only are the top rates moving higher this week, average 2 year CD rates are also higher. The current average 2 year CD rate is at 1.50 percent, up from last week's average 2 year rate of 1.47 percent. Listed below are the top ten 2 year CD rates for the week ending April 15, 2017.

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.
Current CD Rates, the Calm Before the Storm
The next few months will be the calm before the storm regarding CD rates. Banks and credit unions will keep CD rates near current levels until the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) increases the federal funds rate. Our money is on the FOMC increasing the fed funds rate in the June meeting. Read more...

CD Rates at Banks and Credit Unions March 24, 2015

Unemployment Report Falls to 5.8% are Higher CD Rates on the Way?
Another economic report was released this morning showing an economy continuing to recover. This recovery process will eventually force CD rates higher. The Labor Department just released non-farm payrolls showing that 214,000 jobs were created in October, slightly lower than forecasts of 231,000. The unemployment rate fell from 5.9 percent to 5.8 percent, which is the lowest point in six years. The number of jobs created were slightly lower than forecast but the recovery remains intact.
