Best CD Rates: One Year CD Rates

One year CD rates are averaging .98 percent this morning. CD rates are will aren't expected to head higher until the 2nd or 3rd quarter of 2010 when the Federal Reserve Bank rasies the Fed funds rate. 

When the Fed funds rate heads higher banks will raise CD rates and savings rates. Since interest rates are expected to go higher later this year we recommend staying in short term certificate of deposit accounts. The longest term CD we would invest in is a one year CD.

Although the average one year CD rate is less than 1.00 percent you can find CD rates higher than the average rate. Tennessee Commerce Bank is offering the best bank CD rate on our list of 12 month certificates of deposit.

The bank's current CD rate is 1.69 percent with an APY of 1.70 percent. The minimum opening deposit is $2,500. Next in line on our 12 month certificate of deposit table is Discover Bank, their current CD rate is 1.59 percent with an APY of 1.60 percent. Their minimum opening deposit is also $2,500.
