Reference Rate

A reference rate is an interest rate used as a benchmark to set prices for products such as mortgages and credit cards. The most common reference rate in the United States is the federal funds rate, which is the interest rate that banks charge each other for overnight loans. Other countries have their own reference rates, such as the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) in the United Kingdom.
