5-Year CD Rates in Greater New Orleans Region Higher Than National Average

NEW YORK - RateWatch, a premier banking data and analytics service owned by TheStreet, Inc. (NASDAQ: TST) reported today that national averages this week for CD rates of all durations remained unchanged as the Federal Reserve has continued to keep the short-term federal funds rate at a range of zero to 0.25% since late 2008.

"For the seventh-straight week national averages of CD rates remained unchanged. Banks aren't budging on significant rate changes for savers seeking a place to park their cash," reported Joe Deaux, Economics Analyst for TheStreet. "Fed Chairman Janet Yellen addresses the press in two weeks, when investors should listen for any new language about when the central bank will raise the benchmark interest rate."
