Months Of Weak Jobs Reports Means Bad News For Savers TheStreet and RateWatch Report Top National & Regional CD Rate Issuers

NEW YORK, Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- RateWatch, a premier banking data and analytics service owned by TheStreet, Inc. (NASDAQ: TST) reported today that national averages for 3-year CD rates slightly gained this week as CDs generally remained unchanged at record-low levels.

"We've seen a one basis point fluctuation in national 3-year CD rates for the last four weeks, and little change in other CD terms," reported Joe Deaux, TheStreet's Economics Analyst. "Multiple months of weaker jobs reports have led the Fed to refrain from scaling back its monthly economic stimulus program. The decision to not 'taper' pushes back the stage at which the central bank will begin to raise the federal funds rate. For savers, this suggests banks won't be boosting CD rates significantly in the near term."
