Dallas CD Rates Fall Short of National Average

Dallas CD rates are shown to be smaller than the national average according to a new study.

For easy viewing, the data has been compiled into an infographic comparing Dallas CD rates to other cities in the nation. After the recent recession, many consumers are interested in maximizing savings while protecting their investments from ongoing market volatility. Interest rates from CD accounts are expected to remain low until the economy shows strong signs of growth and recovery.
