Depositors May Have to Wait a Bit Longer for Interest Rates to Rise

TheStreet and RateWatch Report Top CD Rate Issuers

NEW YORK, Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- RateWatch, a premier banking data and analytics service owned by TheStreet, Inc. (NASDAQ: TST) reported today that interest rates for savings products generally decreased over the previous week with the average national rate on a 2-year, 3-year, 4-year, and 5-year CD decreasing by 0.01 percent based on data collected from over 90,000 financial institution locations.

Bank deposit rates have been range-bound at historically low levels because the Federal Reserve has kept its target range for the short-term federal funds rate in a range of zero to 0.25% since late 2008.  While the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp's Transaction Account Guarantee Program -- which provided unlimited insurance coverage for non-interest bearing transaction accounts -- has ended, banks are flush with liquidity, making it unlikely that there will be significant competition for deposits over the short term. 

It appears that depositors may have to wait a bit longer for interest rates to begin to rise, but for the banking industry, the yield curve has been improving.  Long-term U.S. Treasury securities were trading at a yield of 1.81% Tuesday morning, with yields as high as 1.91% on Jan. 3, rising from a range of 1.60% only a month earlier.  During this painful economic cycle, U.S. Treasury yields briefly went as low as 1.38% in July.
