Best CD Rates California

Current CD rates are so low these days finding the best CD rates isn’t an easy thing to do. The national average CD rates seem to go down every week. Will there by any end in sight? There just might be. The Federal Reserve is poised to raise the Fed Funds rate before the end of 2010. Once the Fed Funds rate heads higher banks and credit unions will raise CD rates and savings account rates.

Searching for the highest CD rates at banks and credit unions? Use our CD rate tables at CDRates.MonitorBankRates.com to find the highest CD interest rates.




The current national average 3 month CD rate is averaging 0.40 percent this week. Not much of a return for your money. The current 12 month CD rate is averaging 0.86 percent this week. Longer term CD rates aren’t much better. The current national average 60 month CD rate is averaging 2.24 percent.
