This past week brought more CD rate changes that were once again positive.  Five different banks changed CD Rates on 24 certificate of deposit terms and all the increases were higher. Over the past year, the best 1 year CD rates have just about doubled in price to around 2.50 percent.

We anticipate banks increasing CD rates even more this year and next. CD rates are moving higher because the Federal Reserve is putting upward pressure on rates by increasing the federal funds rate. The Fed is widely expected to increase the rate again during their upcoming September meeting, according to the CME's FedWatch Tool.



CD Rate ChangesAnother 25 basis point increase in September would put the fed funds rate in a targeted range of 2.00 percent to 2.25 percent. Beside the September meeting, the Fed has two more scheduled meetings this year. The CME FedWatch Tool currently puts the change of an increase during the Fed's December meeting at 60.6 percent.

By the end of September, the highest 12 month CD rates will move into the 2.75 percent range. By the end of 2018, the highest 12 month CD rates will move towards 3.00 percent.
