M1 The sum of-currency held by the public, plus travelers' checks, plus demand deposits, plus other checkable deposits-i.e., negotiable order of withdrawal (NOW) accounts, automatic transfer service (ATS) accounts and credit union share drafts.
M2 MI plus savings accounts and small-denomination time deposits, plus shares in money market mutual funds (other than those restricted to institutional investors) and overnight Eurodollars and repurchase agreements.
