No LIBOR News Today Due to Christmas Day Holiday

New York and London markets are closed for the Christmas Day holiday, so there is no LIBOR or TED spread-related news today.

There will be no LIBOR news tomorrow, December 26, as London markets will be closed for the Boxing Day holiday. TED spread-related news will be posted here tomorrow.

The yield on the 13-week U.S. Treasury Bill is 0.005%. Therefore, the TED spread is currently 1.4625 percentage points; it was 1.4925 last Friday and 4.34 on October 15, 2008. For the TED spread, a figure between zero and 50 basis points (50 basis points = 0.50 percentage point) is a strong indication that the international banking system is normal and healthy.

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 e.g. Tanzania.

NB: Happy Holidays!
