money market

a MARKET engaged in the short-term lending and borrowing of MONEY, linking together the financial institutions (COMMERCIAL BANKS, DISCOUNT HOUSES etc.), companies and the government. To take one example: a company with surplus short-term funds might deposit these funds with its commercial bank, which in turn places them on ‘call’ (deposit) with a discount house. The discount house in turn uses the money to purchase TREASURY BILLS issued by the government. See DISCOUNT MARKET.
