The Fed's next three meetings occur in mid March, late April and late June. We anticipate the Fed will start raising the Fed funds rate by the June meeting if the economic recovery continues. When the Fed starts raising rates, banks will follow suit and raise CD rates, savings account rates and mortgage rates.

The current average 12 month certificate of deposit rate is 1.01 percent. Following is a list of the top CD rates in New York City above the national average rate.
