LIBOR Drops Suddenly

LIBOR drops:


he London interbank offered rate, or Libor, for three- month loans fell to 2.51 percent today, from 4.82 percent on Oct. 10. The rate is still 151 basis points more than the Federal Reserve's target interest rate for overnight bank loans, compared with an average of 22 basis points in the five years before the global credit crisis began in August 2007.

It appears the deposits on hand, at least in Europe are increasing, which means banks are not loaning money still and hording cash.
