Earlier today, in the first monetary policy meeting of the year, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) of the Federal Reserve opted to make no changes to short-term interest rates.

Right now, the yield on the 3-month U.S. Treasury Bill is 0.18%. Therefore, the TED spread is currently 0.99438 percentage point; it was 1.05438 yesterday, 1.07938 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. Chad.
