Top 2 Year CD Rates Drop Below 2%

It didn’t take long for iGObanking to realize how well they were paying on their 2 year CD. Just last month they were paying almost half a point higher than the next leading 2 year CD, then dropped their rates to 2.00%, still beating out the competition. Now iGObanking has dropped their 24 month rate to 1.00% APY, lower than the highest leading 6-month and 12-month rates, which are 1.15% and 1.51%.

This might be a sign of things to come as rates continue their slide down the charts. No other bank or financial institution is close to paying 2% on any 24 month CD. Keep in mind that the national average of a 2 year CD is sitting right around 0.77% APY.
