This series has been discontinued with a phase of the simplification of reserves administration (https://federalregister.gov/a/2012-8562). The simplification of reserves administration provides an opportunity to streamline the process of calculating the monetary base so that it reflects the fundamental concept of this measure. The fundamental concept of the monetary base, or "high-powered money," is the sum of total balances maintained by depository institutions at the Federal Reserve plus currency in circulation.

Use a formula to modify and combine data series into a single line. For example, invert an exchange rate a by using formula 1/a, or calculate the spread between 2 interest rates a and b by using formula a - b.

Use the assigned data series variables above (e.g. a, b, ...) together with operators {+, -, *, /, ^}, braces {(,)}, and constants {e.g. 2, 1.5} to create your own formula {e.g. 1/a, a-b, (a+b)/2, (a/(a+b+c))*100}. The default formula 'a' displays only the first data series added to this line. You may also add data series to this line before entering a formula.
