Interst Rate Spreads we should know

  1. Greetings,

    I've been around the block a bit but never had the academic motivation to learn the important spreads that a trader should know.

    So, I am making a most humble request to all you yield curve, swap rate, libor, Ted spread number crunchers, chime in and simply list some of the spreads, what they mean and where to get the data (besides a bloomberg terminal or reuters pro). If you wish, you may even add why it's so important for us to know.

    Who knows? Perhaps, we can actually learn something on ET. ;)

    Any help would be most appreciated by this old fart.

    Thank you in advance.

    PS: Please feel free to add anything constructive even if it's not about spreads.

    PSS: Also need help with spelling interest.
