Right now, the yield on the 3-month U.S. Treasury Bill is 0.125%. Therefore, the TED spread is currently 0.98188 percentage point; it was 0.9725 yesterday, 0.95625 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 capital is flowing through international credit markets normally.

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. Singapore.
