Money Market:
The money market exists for the purpose of issuing and trading of short-term instruments, that is,Instruments where the term remaining from the date when trading takes place to the date of maturity, is of a short-term nature.
History:
The money market developed because parties had surplus funds, while others needed cash.[3][4]Today it comprises cash instruments as well.
Participants:
The money market consists of financial institutions and dealers in money or credit who wish toeither borrow or lend. Participants borrow and lend for short periods of time, typically up to thirteenmonths. Money market trades in short-term financial instruments commonly called "paper." Thiscontrasts with the capital market for longer-term funding, which is supplied by bonds and equity.The core of the money market consists of interbank lending--banks borrowing and lending to eachother using commercial paper, repurchase agreements and similar instruments. These instrumentsare often benchmarked to (i.e. priced by reference to) the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR)for the appropriate term and currency.Finance companies typically fund themselves by issuing large amounts of asset-backed commercialpaper (ABCP) which is secured by the pledge of eligible assets into an ABCP conduit. Examples of eligible assets include auto loans, credit card receivables, residential/commercial mortgage loans,mortgage-backed securities and similar financial assets. Certain large corporations with strong creditratings, such as General Electric, issue commercial paper on their own credit. Other largecorporations arrange for banks to issue commercial paper on their behalf via commercial paperlines.In the United States, federal, state and local governments all issue paper to meet funding needs.States and local governments issue municipal paper, while the US Treasury issues Treasury bills tofund the US public debt.
