Federal Funds Rate

A federal funds rate is the interest rate at which depository institutions (banks and credit unions) lend reserve balances to other depository institutions overnight on an uncollateralized basis. This rate is set by the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC). The FOMC controls the three tools of monetary policy: open market operations, discount rate, and reserve requirements.
