What to consider when opening CDs
- Interest rates are fixed. If you open a Capital One bank CD today, its annual percentage yield will stay the same until the CD expires. This benefits you if you lock in a CD before rates start dropping, but on the flip side, you’ll earn less on a CD if rates keep rising. It’s hard to know when CD rates will go up, since it depends on Fed rate hikes and other factors.
- 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 CD before it expires, there’s an early withdrawal penalty, which means losing some or all the interest you earned.
