Fixed-rate loan

Loan

 in which the 

Interest

 rate does not change during the entire 

Term

 of the loan. For an individual taking out a 

Loan

 when rates are low, the 

Fixed rate

 loan would allow him or her to "lock in" the 

Low

 rates and not be concerned with fluctuations. On the other hand, if 

Interest

 rates were historically 

High

 at the time of the loan, he or she would 

Benefit

 from a 

Floating rate

 loan, because as the 

Prime

 rate fell to historically normal levels, the rate on the 

Loan

 would decrease. opposite of 

Adjustable rate
