Interest Rate Roundup
National CD rates

Here's a look at the state of CD rates from's weekly national survey of large banks and thrifts conducted Dec. 30, 2009.


Yields: 0.82 percent (1-year CD yield); 2.1 percent (5-year CD yield)

It's another ho-hum week for CD rates, with yields pretty much staying right where we left them last week.

The average yield for one-year CDs, as surveyed by, remains at 0.82 percent for the third week in a row. The average yield for five-year CDs came in at 2.1 percent for the second week.

The jumbos budged off of last week's numbers, but not by much. The one-year average yield is 0.88 percent, down 1 basis point; the five-year average rose 1 basis point to 2.13 percent.

Money market accounts shed 1 basis point; the yield is now averaging 0.23 percent.
