weekly-savings-account-rates-updated-june-17-2009Savings account rates were down fractionally this past week. Rates on savings accounts are so low right now they can't decline much further. Unlike the recent rise in U.S. Treasury prices that drove mortgage rates higher the past several weeks.

I don't anticipate savings account rates and money market account rates to increase until later this year or early next year when the economy recovers and the Feds raises rates to temper the threat of inflation.



Savings Account and money market rates for account balances of $50,000 averaged 0.684 percent this week, down from last weeks national average rate of 0.691 percent. AIG Bank is currently offering one of the best savings rates for a savings account of $50,000. The rate as of 6/17/09 is 2.01 percent. Rates change constantly so check our savings account rate tables for rates in your zip code.
