High-Yield CDs

Rate Links
Typically, fixed-term certificates of deposit sold directly by an issuing bank offer higher yields than liquid savings accounts. However, the money is locked into the CD and cannot be cashed without penalties before the maturity date. In contrast, brokered CDs may be sold like bonds prior to maturity in the secondary market at the prevailing market price. Savings CDs usually require a minimum deposit between $500 and $25,000. Jumbo CDs sometimes offer slightly higher interest rates, but usually require a minimum deposit between $50,000 and $100,000. Institutional Jumbo CDs are not available to individuals. They are sold to institutional and corporate investors.

Money Markets include MMDA, NOW, savings accounts, passbook and other liquid bank accounts that earn interest. Money markets offer lower interests than CDs and require minimum deposits. However, money can be withdrawn from the accounts without penalties. Jumbo money markets require higher minimum deposits than savings money markets. Where a minimum deposit for a savings money market might be as low as $1,000, jumbo money markets will usually require a deposit of at least $50,000.
