The 6- and 12-month Eurodollar LIBOR rates rose on the week, while the 3-month rate eased and the 1-month rate held steady. On the day, the 12-month rate rose, the 3-month edged lower, while the 1- and 6-month rates moved sideways. The 3-month TED spread narrowed marginally on both the day and the week.

Right now, the yield on the 3-month U.S. Treasury Bill is 0.12%. Therefore, the 3-month TED spread is currently 0.16438 percentage point; it was 0.16563 yesterday, 0.16563 last Friday and 4.60875 on October 10, 2008 at the peak of the global banking crisis.

For the 3-month TED spread, a figure between zero and 0.50 percentage point (0.50 percentage point = 50 basis points) is a strong indication that large, international banks are lending money to each other with confidence.
