GMAC's Money Market Account Now 5.10%, But CD Rates Drop


GMAC Bank increased the rate on its Money Market Savings account from 5.05% to 5.10% APY today. This follows a 0.15% rate bump two weeks ago. Although the money market rate increased, most CD rates were lowered. The 1-year CD now only earns 5.50% APY (down from 5.65%). Below shows how the CD rates have changed:

The yield curve continues to flatten. Now there's only 0.50% difference between a liquid money market account and a 5-year CD. I've also noticed some reduction in long-term CD rates at other places including Countrywide Bank, Transportation Alliance Bank and Self-Help Credit Union. If the Fed rate hikes end next month, these rate reductions may become more common.
