Market-linked CDs or index-linked CDs are certificates of deposit with a return based on a market index such as the S&P 500, a basket of equities or some combination of both.
These index linked CDs often underperform due to: 1) fees if you cash out early, 2) returns that are taxable as interest, 3) a cap on any gains,4) a risk of being redeemed by the issuing institution before maturity and 5) they are vulnerable to the impact of a weaker market.
Perhaps the biggest problem is the confusion created by calling these CDs. Index linked CDs are not traditional CDs at all and are considerably more risky than a CD issued by a bank.
Based on information and belief, JP Morgan Chase BK NA Columbus Ohio CTF DEP is linked to the S&P Economic Cycle Factor Rotator Index.
