Can't get the URL to work. Maybe too good to be true?

Re: IngDirect paying 2.6%

This one will work. Catch is if you want the 4% jumbo you have to go into the branch to get it.

http://hvfcu.org/PM/PM_CAGive.cfm


Or send you ur money to me and I'll deposit it for you.

Seriously, though this thread is testimony to the effects of rising interest rates. Banks almost never gamble on futures. Now they are offering higher rates over a longer period. The last time this CU offered a 4% rate was in December for 90 days only. I got that one and was planning to cash out this week and send all to Vanguard. Maybe I'll hang in for another year...

Re: IngDirect paying 2.6%

Well, maybe you're right, but here I sit with a bunch of cash and can't decide where to put it. An extra 0.1
here, a few catches there, short term CDs, rates in flux
but trending up? What to do? The interesting part is
that I'm probably only losing enough interest to pay for my daily
Frappacino fix, but it's bothering me to have that money
just sitting there

If I were you, I'd be a lot more worried about the GM bonds.

Re: IngDirect paying 2.6%

I have an ING savings account at 2.6%. It's nice because I'm poor and only moving $25 a month into it. It beats my credit union's current rate.

Re: IngDirect paying 2.6%

Anybody else notice that vanguards MM funds are actually paying some half decent rates now...I think the admiral MM is paying 2.3%? Not bad if you're up for keeping your cash all in one place.

Well, LT bonds are out on the floor today doing their little strip tease dance if you're in an adventurous mood.

Re: IngDirect paying 2.6%

My weekly Corus bank post

I think they should kick in some money for all the exposure I have given them.

This week its short term CDs went up again.

If you have min $10k.

6 months is 3.32% APY
1 year is 3.70% APY

They continue to be the internet market leaders for 6 and 12 months CDs and they keep going up. Last week the 1 year was 3.59%

Re: IngDirect paying 2.6%

Thanks for the update MJ. I noticed the other day that
the best MM rate on bankrate.com was some bank in Irvine, Cal. 3.25% with check writing and a low
minimum deposit. I was tempted but am still
studying (yep, I tend to overdo) my options. Right now
I am getting 2.53% in my regular bank's checking
account. That extra .5% would be attractive, even though
in the real world it won't buy me much. I can get
a 3% MM locally but lots of conditions attached.
