I'm Greg McBride, chief analyst with Bankrate.com, and here is your weekly look at yields on certificates of deposit.
There has been very little in the way of movement on CD yields recently, with no clear trend. This week we saw the average one-year and two-year CDs inch higher to 0.24 percent and 0.38 percent, respectively. In both cases, this was the first movement posted in a couple of months.
When sustained improvement comes, it will be seen first in longer maturity CDs. But even here, there is still an absence of good news. The average four-year and five-year CD yields have been stuck in the same, very narrow range for the past year.
Even with record low yields, it is still important to shop around for the best possible returns. To find the best yields on all CD maturities, as well as other savings instruments, go to Bankrate.com.
