If you have the Federal Reserve website saved for accessing Selected Interest Rates (H.15), you are going to need to update your website bookmark or favorites. The Federal Reserve announced on September 26, 2016, that it will cease publication of the following interest rates on its Selected Interest Rates H.15 statistical release effective October 11th.
- Eurodollar deposits
- Corporate bonds
- State and local bonds
- Conventional Mortgages
The new website for these rates may be found at: http://www.federalreserve.gov/datadownload/Choose.aspx?rel=H15. For instructions on how to access the desired rate, please refer to the Q & A’s found at http://www.federalreserve.gov/releases/h15/h15_technical_qa.htm.
The Board will continue to publish the following interest rates in the H.15 release (old website address): federal funds (effective), commercial paper, bank prime loan, discount window primary credit, and U.S. Treasury securities (including Treasury Constant Maturities).
Additionally, the Board will no longer publish the H.15 in PDF format or publish weekly and monthly averages directly on the H.15. Instead, weekly and monthly averages will continue to be available through the Board’s Data Download Program.
