At Schwab you are giving up at least 1/3 of your yield to get a brokered CD. You'd think 10% would be a nice commission for Schwab but apparently not. I'm having a hard time getting myself to farm out dollars to other banks direct in order to get decent yields, and it complicates things not knowing if they are going to extend the $250K FDIC coverage past the first of the year.

Are the E-trade rates any better than Schwab?
