    How do you view historical bank savings rates?

    Bank savings rates are set and changed at a bank's discretion to encourage deposits, but broad trends in historical bank rates can be inferred from historical rates for U.S. Treasury Bonds and for certificates of deposit. Three excellent sources for understanding historical bank rates are the 100-year history of U.S. Treasury Bond rates, the 30-year history of U.S. CD rates, and the 30-year history of Bank of England bank rates offered online.
