One-Month & Three-Month LIBOR End The Week Above U.S. Prime Rate

The 1- and 3-month LIBOR rates ended the week above the U.S. Prime Rate, as caution persisted as the dominant sentiment for banks that participate in the London wholesale money market.

Right now, the yield on the 3-month U.S. Treasury Bill is 0.21%. Therefore, the TED spread is now 4.60875 percentage points.

A Eurodollar is a U.S. dollar deposited in any bank outside the United States, and therefore not subject to regulation by the U.S. Federal Reserve. U.S. dollars deposited in a London bank are Eurodollars, as are U.S. dollars deposited in a bank in Japan, etc.
