So what we all knew.  The Fed is sacrificing CD savers on the alter of the Stock Market!  That's great news for those who are in stocks but sooner or later what goes up comes down and they won't have a cushion of FDIC insurance to protect them.  What is so cruel is that we CD purchasers are not asking for really high interest rates, I would be delirious if 3% ever returned!  I guess I will never get to enjoy such delirium!
