Top One Year CD Rates – February 9, 2010

top-one-year-cd-rates-february-9-2010The average 12 month CD rate was up this week over last week. In fact, all certificate of deposit terms were higher with the exception of 6 month CD rates. A nice change of pace since CD rates have been heading down for over a year now.

The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) recently decided to keep the Fed funds rate in a targeted range of zero percent to one quarter percent which we expected. That being said, we were surprised to see CD rates higher in this week's CD rates report.

The FOMC will meet again in mid March, late April and late June. We believe the Fed will start raising the Fed funds rate by the June meeting although that could change if the economic recovery is slower than expected.

The current average 12 month certificate of deposit rate is 1.076  percent this week, up from the previous week's average 12 month CD rate of 1.008 percent. Here is a list of the top CD rates in Newark, New Jersey above and below the national average rate:
