Fed Funds Rate

The U. S. Federal Funds Rate is the interest rate a U.S. Federal Reserve depository institution (bank, S&L or Credit Union) will charge another bank to borrow their excess reserves held at the Federal Reserve.  These reserves, or Federal Funds, are traded by banks (usually overnight) to meet their reserve requirements or enable the clearing of financial transactions.
