5-Year CD Rates in Greater Cincinnati Region Lower Than National Average

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

"Savers remain in limbo because the Federal Reserve has repeated that it won’t lift the federal funds rate anytime soon, but a growing number of economists are arguing that the central bank will have to increase interest rates sooner than many market participants anticipate," reported Joe Deaux, TheStreet’s Economics Analyst. "For now, savers can expect few changes in average national CD rates, but they also shouldn’t be shocked if that shifts by the end of 2014."
