3-Year CD Rates Decrease As Investors Uncertain Whether Federal Reserve Will Scale Back Economic Stimulus Program

TheStreet and RateWatch Report Top National & Regional CD Rate Issuers

NEW YORK, Jan. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- RateWatch, a premier banking data and analytics service owned by TheStreet, Inc. (NASDAQ: TST) reported today that national averages for 3-year CD rates decreased one basis point this week, while other durations remained unchanged as the Federal Reserve has continued to keep the short-term federal funds rate at a range of zero to 0.25% since late 2008.

"Though the December jobs report left investors uncertain as to whether the Federal Reserve will continue to scale back its economic stimulus program, savers should understand that economists expect the central bank to extend the taper. This still suggests CD rates will trend higher over the long term," reported Joe Deaux, TheStreet's Economics Analyst.

Blockchain. A day doesn’t seem to go by without seeing articles and discussions about the technology.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love.
