Another option to having 5 CDs in the ladder is to have 8. You begin by buying a 3mo, 6mo, 9mo, 1yr, 2yr,3yr, 4,yr, & a 5yr.Hmm...I'm not sure the incremental benefit would be worth the hassle, but ok. Another trick is to buy 5 year CDs where the early withdrawal penalty isn't too bad (3-6 months). Then you get the 5 year rate and liquidity at a reasonable cost.Nick
