Weekly-CD-Rates-ReportCertificate of deposit rates have been low since late last fall. CD rates were driven lower when the credit crisis hit and drove the economy further into a steep recession,  forcing the FOMC to drop interest rates.

We don't anticipate CD rates turning higher until the economy is expanding again and the Federal Reserve Bank starts raising rates which will probably happen later in 2009 or early 2010.
