5-Year CD Rates in Greater Nashville 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.

"National CD rates remained unchanged over a Labor Day shortened week as investors await further data on the U.S. economy," said Antoine Gara, Reporter for TheStreet. "Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said the central bank continues to see significant slack in the labor market at its Jackson Hole summit in late August. Those comments underscore traders' expectations that short term interest will remain low for an extended period of time even after the Fed ends its monthly bond purchases this fall."
