This chapter discusses the evolution of two essential markets to global banks. Foreign exchange markets allow for the trading of foreign currencies, using instruments such as spot transactions, futures, forwards, and swaps. Money markets link international lenders of short-term funds with borrowers using instruments such as Eurocurrencies and Eurobonds. Such loans are priced using the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR). The chapter details how the money markets froze up during the global financial crisis in 2008 and explains why the foreign exchange market stayed liquid.
