Nordstrom Bank CD rates are new to our rate table having been added this past month. Nordstrom Bank’s rates are very competitive and the bank’s 1 year CD rate is the third top rate on our 1 year CD rates list. The bank’s deposits are insured by the FDIC, the bank’s FDIC Certificate number is 33497.

Nordstrom Bank is a trade name of Nordstrom FSB, a wholly owned subsidiary of Nordstrom, Inc. The bank’s full service and only brick and mortar office is based in Scottsdale, Arizona. In case you’re wondering, the bank is associated with the high end department store Nordstrom.

Now let’s take a look at the CD interest rates offered. 1 year CD rates at Nordstrom Bank are currently at 1.22 percent with an APY of 1.23 percent. The only banks on our list that have a better rate are Synchrony Bank and CIT Bank at 1.24 percent with an APY of 1.25 percent

The bank’s other rates are competitive but don’t make into the top 5 on our rate lists. Listed below are all the rates offered by the bank.

Certificate of deposit rates continue to slowly move higher this week. While several banks increased their CD rates, there are no new highs to report on this week. Like I have stated in the past, we will have to wait for the Federal Open Market Committee to vote to increase the federal funds rate before we see remarkably higher CD rates.

It won’t be too long before we actually see higher rates. The FOMC usually votes to increase or decrease the federal funds rate during one of their regularly scheduled meetings. The next FOMC meeting scheduled for June 16 and June 17.

There is a chance we will see the fed funds rate increased during the June meeting. After the June meeting, there is another meeting in July and one in September. There is almost a 100 percent certainly that the rate will be increased between June and September.

Since CD rates are moving higher over the next 4 months you should stay invested in shorter term certificates of deposit. The best short term CD rate we have right now is on our 2 month rate list. MyCBB Bank 2 month CD rate is currently at 0.80 percent with an APY of 0.80 percent.

Listed below are the highest CD rates for both short term and long term certificates of deposit. Also listed below are the FDIC’s national average rates for May 11, 2015. The FDIC releases a weekly report on national average deposit rates.

Federal Open Market Committee officials are still uncertain on when to increase their key benchmark interest rate, the federal funds rate. CD rates and other deposit rates are tied to the federal funds rate so when the rate is increased, deposit rates will also move higher.

The most recent press release by the Fed didn’t contain any surprises on when rates will move higher. The most telling statement was the following:

The Committee currently anticipates that, even after employment and inflation are near mandate-consistent levels, economic conditions may, for some time, warrant keeping the target federal funds rate below levels the Committee views as normal in the longer run.

In plain language, the Fed is saying even when they increase the rate, they might keep it lower than would have in the past. This policy makes sense in that the Fed is hedging their bets for the future but not committing to anything. We have seen so many false starts regarding economic growth.

Growth was robust for many quarters until the first quarter of 2015’s GDP growth of 0.2 percent, a shocking and disappointing number. Chances are the harsh cold weather most of the country experienced in January and February depressed growth. We should see a sharp rebound in 2nd quarter GDP.

If 2nd quarter growth comes in above 3.00 percent and if job growth is strong in the coming months the Fed will increase rates in June. Weaker than expected growth will force the Fed to wait until later in the summer or until as late as September to increase rates.

Either way, interest rates are moving higher within the next 4 months. If you have any certificates of deposits maturing, be sure to reinvest in shorter term CDs. It makes no sense to lock into a long term CD rate now when rates are moving higher.

By the end of 2015, 1 year CD rates could be in the 2.50 percent to 3.00 percent range. 6 month CD rates will head towards 2.00 percent. Longer term rates will also move higher. 5 year CD rates which are currently around 2.25 percent will increase towards 3.50 percent, possibly as high as 4.00 percent.

The higher interest rate cycle will start in 2015 and will last until 2017 or 2018. I wouldn’t lock into a CD term longer than 1 year for the next 3 years. You’re better off staying invested in 6 month CDs so you can take advantage of higher rates every 6 months.

Listed below are the best CD rates for CD terms of 3 months, 6 months, and 1 year:
