Hello

I enjoy your website and check-in often to see the latest and greatest deposit rates... You guys are the best single source for this.

My question is in regard to indexed CD's or market linked CD's. It's very difficult to find any information about these, and when I do find something they seem very complicated with fees that make them seem less attractive.

Can you provide some insight to these investments and perhaps provide some resources and/or recommendations.

Thanks

Simone

These three internet articles pretty much cover market-linked CD products in detail:

In the Spring of 2012 the FDIC issued a warning regarding market-linked CD products
