CURRENT ACCOUNT: One of two parts of a nation's balance of payments (the other is capital account). It is a record of all trade, exports and imports, between a nation and the rest of the world. The current account is separated into merchandise, services, and what's called unilateral transfers. The merchandise part is nothing other than the well-known balance of trade. There's also a lesser known balance of services -- the difference between services imported and exported.

TIME DEPOSITS

Interest-paying bank accounts maintained by traditional commercial banks, credit unions, savings and loan associations, and mutual savings banks with a minimum time (at least seven days) before deposited funds can be withdrawn. Time deposits come in one of two varieties: (1) savings deposits and (2) certificates of deposit. The minimum time period prevents these accounts from functioning as demand deposits and being widely used as money. Time deposits, along with money market mutual funds, are added to M1 to derive M2.
