Without Fed Action, CD Rates Remain Frozen TheStreet and RateWatch Report Top National & Regional CD Rate Issuers

NEW YORK, Oct. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- RateWatch, a premier banking data and analytics service owned by TheStreet, Inc. (NASDAQ: TST) reported today that national averages for CD rates remained unchanged across all durations as the Federal Reserve has continued to keep the short-term federal funds rate at a range of zero to 0.25% since late 2008.

"The freeze in rates comes as no surprise as economists and market analysts expect the Federal Reserve's latest policy statement to make no change to its economic stimulus program," said Joe Deaux, TheStreet's Economics Analyst. "Investors were anticipating a September tapering of the central bank's monthly asset purchases, but the decision to continue buying at the same pace coupled with the government shutdown through most of October has left many market participants believing that the economy is still too fragile for substantial policy change. Until we see Fed action, savers can expect similar sluggish fluctuation in CD rates."
