Federal Reserve requirement

Amount of 

Money

 and 

Liquid

 assets that Federal Reserve System member banks must hold in 

Cash

 or on deposit with the Federal Reserve System, usually a specified percentage of their 

Demand

 deposits and 

Time deposit

. While this is a way of ensuring that the banks always have a sufficient amount of 

Cash

 for depositors, it is also a way of controlling the 

Money

 supply. Increasing the 

Reserve requirement

 will decrease the 

Money

 supply, and decreasing the 

Reserve ratio

 will increase the 

Money

 supply. also called 

Federal Reserve requirement

 or reserve ratio.
