Interest Rate Roundup

Here's a look at the state of interest rates on five common consumer banking products and the latest rates from Bankrate.com's weekly national survey of large banks and thrifts conducted July 22, 2009.

Interest Rate Roundup
CDs
Yields: 1.08 percent (1-year CD yield); 2.16 percent (5-year CD yield)

Short-term CD yields tumbled a bit this week while their longer-term counterparts held their ground.

The average yield for a one-year CD, as surveyed by Bankrate.com, lost 2 basis points to come in at 1.08 percent. The five-year average yield rose 1 basis point to 2.16 percent.

Jumbos pretty much mimicked their shorter-term brethren, with the one-year dropping 3 basis points to 1.17 percent and the five-year holding steady at 2.19 percent for the second week in a row.

Over the past four weeks, the average one-year yield for traditional CDs has steadily dropped 8 basis points, while the five-year has jockeyed around a bit, losing a total of 2 basis points in that time period. Similarly, the one-year jumbo has shed 8 basis points, while the five-year is down 3.

The average yield for money market accounts fell 1 basis point to 0.36 percent.
