This chart shows the contribution of the interbank cost of borrowing spread to the CFSI. This spread is used to measure counterparty risk and is used to measure the degree of apprehension with which banks loan to one another. It is calculated as the difference between the 3-Month LIBOR and the Federal Funds Rate.
