CD rates at banks continued the upward trajectory this month as banks increased rates again. For the past two years, financial institutions are increasing CD rates because the Federal Open Market Committee is increasing the fed funds rate. 

This current round of monetary tightening started back in December 2015 when the Fed increased the rate .25 percent. The Fed kept the rate at a record low range of zero percent to 0.25 percent for several years. The financial crisis and Great Recession almost a decade ago forced the Fed to lower the rate to near zero percent. 

The current fed funds rate is in a range of 1.25 percent to 1.5o percent. You can view a chart of the fed funds rate going back to 1955 at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.

CD Rates at Banks Increased This MonthSince December 2015, CD rates at banks also moved higher. Back then the best CD rates on 1 year certificates of deposit were around 1.05 percent. Since then, the best 1 year CD rates have doubled and are currently at 2.10 percent. 

The expected uptrend for CD rates and for deposit rates in general is higher for the rest of 2018 and into 2019. The Fed is expected to increase the fed funds rate at least twice this year and maybe more. The Fed usually increases the rate in 25 basis point increments.

If the Fed falls behind the inflation curve we could see more than two rate hikes. In addition, we could see hikes in 50 basis point increments. Regardless of how many times the rate is increased by the Fed, the rate is moving higher. 

This is good news for depositors who are finally getting relief from historically low interest rates. You can see a list of current CD rate changes from banks and credit unions listed below.

CD rates are moving higher these days and you can get a better yielding certificate of deposit from an online bank. Internet banks offer much better CD rates than traditional brick and mortar banks. This is especially true these days because online banks are increasing CD rates while big traditional banks keep CD rates at low pathetic levels. For example, a 1 year CD rate at BankDirect is now at 1.60 percent. Chase Bank 12 month CD rates are currently at 0.02 percent. By the way, I had to dig through Chase’s website to find the current 12 month CD rate. Chase’s rate is so low they are probably embarrassed which is probably why the rate is buried.

Best CD Rates AvailableThis list of CD rates below is updated daily. Interest rates will move higher in 2017 and in 2018. Many banks in this report will continue to increase their rates in the months ahead to stay competitive with the best rates available.  Listed below are CD accounts with the current best CD rates:

CD Rates – Updated December 2017

1 Year CD: Ally Bank – 2.00% APY

Minimum Deposit $0

Ally Bank  is offering a 1 year CD rate at 1.98 percent with a yield of 2.00 percent. There is no minimum deposit for this CD Account. Ally Bank has the best yielding 1 year CD account available right now. Learn Moore.

First Internet Bank – 3 to 60 Month CD

Minimum Deposit of $1,000

A 3 month CD yield at 1.11% is better than many 12 month CD rates available these days. As the name would suggest, First Internet Bank of Indiana is based in Indiana. Founded in 1999, First IB is one of first banks to be exclusively online, there are no branch locations. First IB serves all 50 states. The rest of First IB’s rates are better than most rates available we decided to list all their rates: Learn Moore.

All deposits with BPNA (including deposits through Popular Direct deposit products) are insured by the FDIC up to the applicable maximum amount allowed by law for each deposit ownership category. This last point is important, since Popular Direct’s deposits are insured under the BPNA FDIC umbrella be sure to stay under the maximum amount so your deposits are fully insured. Learn Moore.

Opening a CD Account Online

Online banking has come a long way the past 20 years. Opening a certificate of deposit online is very quick, easy and secure. These days it is much more of a hassle to go to a traditional bank to open a CD account. Also why would you when you get better rates with online banks?

In addition, funding a CD account at opening is also easy because most Internet banks these days allow electronic transfers into the account. Setting up these transfers is therefore quick and painless. Online banks also give you a certain amount of time to fund the CD account after you opening it.

CD rates have slowly inched higher for the past year and we recently reach a point for 1 year CD rates, which we haven’t seen for about a half dozen years. We can thank the Federal Reserve for higher CD rates and we can also thank the Fed for 1.50 percent 1 year CD rates. 

That’s right, the best 1 year CD rate available on our rate list has hit the 1.50 percent milestone, a level we haven’t seen since 2011. The outlook for CD rates in 2017 and beyond is also promising because the Fed is expected to continue increasing the Fed funds rate. 

Last month, the Fed increased the federal funds rate 0.25 percent to a targeted range of 0.75 percent to 1.00 percent. This is on top of the 0.25 percent increase we saw in December 2016. The Fed also mentioned the likelihood of at least two more rate increases in 2017.  

Two more fed funds rate increases in 2017 would put the fed funds rate at 1.50 percent. This would send the best 1 year CD rates towards 2.00 percent. The last time we saw 1 year CD rates at or above 2.00 percent was just after the financial crisis nearly 10 years ago.

Banks and credit unions are starting to increase short term CD rates. Could it be in anticipation of the Federal Open Market Committee increasing the fed funds rate in December? Probably. Regardless, higher CD rates are welcome news and we do hope the trend continues into 2107.

The best 1 year CD rate on our rate list had been around 1.30 percent for the past several months. This past week Pentagon Federal Credit Union increased their 1 year CD rate to 1.35 percent with a yield of 1.36 percent. 

I recall a couple years ago the highest 1 year CD rate was at 1.05 percent. Now 1 year CD rates are closing in on 1.5o percent, a rate we haven’t seen in many years.

The Fed is scheduled to meet on December 13 and 14th and is widely expected to increase the fed funds rate by 25 basis points. In fact, the CME Group’s FedWatch Tool has the probability of a 25 basis point hike at 92.7 percent.

Whether or not any banks or credit unions increase their rates remains to be seen but we expect the uptrend in CD rates to continue. Listed below are the top ten 1 year CD rates on our rate list.

Top Ten 1 Year CD Rates
