The interest rates have gone down a lot from 10% to 8.5%. How much is it expected to go down?

This is a great comparison and gives a good snapshot of the interest rates. It helped me make my decision quickly.

I think the interest rates will go down till end of 2009 after which it would stabilize.

Never thought companies are giving 9% return of FDs. Not to mention 10% return from KTDFC.!! Good stuff!

We think the interest rates would stabilize early next year - till then it may just be way down!

By the way, thanks for all the comments!

Hold on tight... Rates are a finicky thing and often are like the tail wagging the dog

When do you think it will start picking up?

Use your brain. Don't deposit in Banks. Deposit in Post Office Monthly Income Schemes, which fetches flat 8% interest for 6 years with advantage of 5% bonus at the end of maturity. The risk is at the minimum of the minimum. Why you people go for always Bank for interest earning.

Paapi,

Post Office MIS us a good investment avenue. However, the interest rates are expected to move up next year. The investor can choose to invest in a 7% bank FD for a year and then invest at a better rate for a longer term next year.
