Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

NEW YORK, June 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- RateWatch, a premier banking data and analytics service owned by TheStreet, Inc. (NASDAQ: TST) reported this week the average 1-, 2-, 3- and 5-year CD rates gained incrementally as national averages generally remained unchanged at record-low levels.

The slight uptick in rates among some CDs comes as the benchmark 10-year Treasury note has risen slowly on speculation that the Federal Reserve may begin to taper its monetary stimulus programs before the end of 2013. The Fed's policy-making arm will release a statement Wednesday on the federal funds rate and its current quantitative easing efforts, and Chairman Ben Bernanke afterwards will conduct a press conference.

"Though reports suggest the Fed is attempting to quell concerns that it may raise federal funds rate in the immediate term, speculation continues to drive Treasury yields higher," states Joe Deaux, TheStreet's Economist. "This could have a similar influence on CD rates."
