Default Advice on laddering GIC's please

Hi,

I have laddered all my GIC investments to have one maturing every year. I have bought 5 year GIC's upon each one's maturation date to get the highest interest rate. I have one coming due this January. The current best 5 year rate is 3.3%. Should I abandon my 5 year reinvestment stategy with this GIC given predictions that rates will likely increase after the summer of 2010.....and if so, how long should I reinvest this GIC for? One year rates are currently 1.4 % Two year rates are 2.05 % Three year rates are 2.55 % and four your rates are 2.92 %

Thanks !!!!

Reinvesting into a 2 year GIC doesn't seem like a bad compromise.
