Best CD Rates This Week April 30, 2013
The best CD rates for the week ending April 30, 2013, are stable while the national average CD rates declined. This month the Federal Reserve Open Market Committee released minutes from their latest meeting which showed no surprises concerning their monetary policy on interest rates. The FOMC plans to continue down the path of keeping their key interest rate, the fed funds rate, near zero percent.As a result of a low fed funds rate, interest rates on all deposit accounts will also remain where they currently are for the foreseeable future. Current CD rates at banks for 1 year certificates of deposit averaged 0.66 percent, a decline from last week's average 1 year CD rate of 0.68 percent. The FDIC national average rate for 1 year certificates of deposit for the week ending April 29, 2013, are even less at 0.21 percent.Of course, the rates listed are national average rates and you can find banks offering rates much higher than the averages. This week's highest CD rates on our 1 year certificate of deposit rate table are from GE Capital Retail Bank at 1.04 percent with an APY of 1.05 percent.
