I'm thinking of buying some brokered CDs now through a broker such as Fidelity. Since interest rates are high, I'm thinking that I might be able to sell them at a premium on the secondary market during a financial crisis (when interest rates are low), and use the cash to buy stocks.
My thinking is that this is likely better than holding on to cash and using this cash to buy stocks during a financial crisis, because I not only am likely to sell the CD for a profit, I also lock in a high interest rate, and I receive high interest even as banks lower their savings account interest rates due to a financial crisis.
However, I would want to see data to confirm my intuition before proceeding. For example, during financial crises, there may be fewer potential buyers due to a general lack of liquidity, and thus I may have to incur a loss if I want to liquidate the CD.
Where can I find historical data on the price of brokered CDs on the secondary market?
