With CD Rates This Low, Take On Some Risk In 2013

Saturday, January 12, 2013 - 7:46 AM
In 2013, don't look for any relief from record-low CD rates.

Even the best certificates of deposit might not keep up with inflation, and the Federal Reserve has all but guaranteed savers will be stuck with low yields for years to come.

But that doesn't mean there aren't alternatives out there to earn some extra cash. You'll just have to take on a little risk.

Shorebreak:  Have you read anything recently about interest rates rising this year?  I was just informed that a friend told my DD to inform me that rates were going to rise this year in case I was buying more CDs.  I am trying to get through to the person to find out where he got his info from but wondered if you read anything concerning this. Thanks!
