CD Rates: Current CD Rates at Banks July 22, 2009CD Rates at banks were down fractionally again this week over last week, except for the average five-year certificate of deposit rate which was up ever so slightly. Certificate of deposit rates are expected to stay in this low range for a while since the Federal Reserve Bank isn't expected to raise interest rates until sometime in 2010 when the economy recovers and gains traction.
