CD Rate Report November 29, 2013

Follow by Email
You might have seen this headlines this past week that some banks are considering charging depositors for deposits. Banks are considering this, threatening if you ask me, because the Federal Reserve has mentioned cutting the 0.25 percent rate of interest on the $2.4 trillion in reserves banks hold at the Federal reserve.  CD rates remain stable in this week's report, no big changes in average rates and the best CD rates available.

The CD rate reports listed below are only for shorter term certificates of deposit. We recommend staying invested in shorter term CD accounts right now because CD rates at banks will be moving higher sometime in the second half of 2014. Any long term CD accounts that are maturing between now and next year should be invested in new shorter term accounts.
