What to consider when opening CDs
Interest rates are fixed. If you open a Capital One CD today, its annual percentage yield will stay the same until the CD expires. This enables you to lock in a CD if rates are relatively high, though there is a risk of losing out if rates continue to rise. It’s hard to know when CD rates go up, but CD rates are trending upward thanks to multiple Fed rate increases since March 2022. Here’s a quick look at historical CD rates, or, if you want a snapshot of high-yield rates by term, see current CD rates.
You lose interest if you withdraw early. CDs are built to keep your money out of sight, out of mind. If you dip into a Capital One bank CD before it expires, there’s an early withdrawal penalty, which means losing some or all the interest you earned.
