Cash settled future based on the USD LIBOR rate for three month deposits.[1] A Eurodollar refers to any United States dollar held outside the U.S. banking system. This is American currency held in off-shore accounts in other countries.[2]

LIBOR is the abbreviation for the London Interbank Offered Rate, which is the interest rate that banks charge each other to borrow short-term on the London interbank market. It is also used more broadly to set short-term interest rates.
