CD Rates Show Slight Increase

TheStreet and RateWatch Report Top National & Regional CD Rate Issuers

Aug 18, 2015, 17:50 ET from TheStreet

NEW YORK, Aug. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- RateWatch, a premier banking data and analytics service owned by TheStreet, Inc. (NASDAQ: TST) reported today that the 5 year CD national average increased from 1.19 to 1.20 this week while national averages for CD rates of all other durations remained unchanged as the Federal Reserve continued to keep the short-term federal funds rate at a range of zero to 0.25% since late 2008.

"CD rates saw a slight increase this week," said Scott Gamm, TheStreet Economics Reporter. "All eyes are now on the minutes report of the Federal Reserve's July meeting, which is set to be released Wednesday afternoon. The report provides investors with a closer look at the discussions that took place among Fed officials during the meeting. Investors will be looking for clues on the timing of the central bank's looming rate hike, which many economists say could come as soon as September."
