Five year GIC decreases to 4.8. What gives? Yes your savings interest increased a bit but I was really disappointed to see the drop in the GIC.

Likely they predict a recession ... so rates adjusted accordingly. GIC rates do seem to have plateaued.

Seems to me that some of the various GIC rates on Scotia iTrade also have dropped slightly this week.

My guess is rates will go up in the fall and then PT won’t have to raise past 5% then. Not liking that game if that’s what it is.
