Money Market Certificate:

A certificate of deposit that when first authorized had a fixed maturity of six months and a $2,500 minimum deposit, with rates based on the weekly posting of average yields for united states treasury bills. With deregulation in the 1980s, federal regulators now leave it up to each individual thrift institution to determine the maturity and yield of this savings instrument.
