Glossary of finance / banking

checkbook money that for a period of time appears on the books of both the payor and payee due to the lag in the collection process

  • note: Federal Reserve float often arises during the Federal Reserve's check collection process. In order to promote an efficient payments mechanism with certainty as to the date funds become available, the Federal Reserve has employed the policy of crediting the reserve accounts of depository institutions depositing checks within a maximum of three business days of the deposit; however, more time may be needed to process certain checks and collect funds from the institutions on which these checks are drawn. This policy results in credit being given to some depository institutions before the Federal Reserve is able to obtain payment from others.

Miscellanea

  1. Float: Floats are airtight hollow structures, similar to pressure vessels, whose air-filled interior makes them buoyant in water. They are most often used to make up the multipart hulls of trimarans, small open catamarans, and floatplanes. Their main purpose is to supply buoyancy, not storage space. The other principal domain of use for pontoons is in marine engineering and construction—shipbuilding, marine salvage, dredging, port facilities, and so on. In such applications, pontoons are sunk, positioned under objects needing raising, and then pumped full of air with air compressors, raising the object. Pontoons are also used to build things like pontoon bridges and floating piers. Such applications make them a useful tool for combat engineers and civilian engineers alike.
    • also known as Floats
  2. Float: In project management, float or slack is the amount of time that a task in a project network can be delayed without causing a delay to: subsequent tasks project completion date An activity on critical path has "Zero free float", but an activity that has zero free float may not be on the critical path. Total float is associated with the path. If a Project Network Chart/Diagram has 4 non-critical paths then that project would have 4 "Total Float" values.
  3. Float: In economics, float is duplicate money present in the banking system during the time between a deposit being made in the recipient's account and the money being deducted from the sender's account. It makes up the smallest part of the money supply.
  4. Float a.k.a. Fishing float: A float, also called a bobber in the United States, is an item of angling equipment that is attached to the fishing line which serves several purposes. Firstly, it can suspend the bait at a predetermined depth; secondly, due to its buoyancy, it can carry the baited hook to otherwise inaccessible areas of water by allowing the float to drift in the prevailing current; and thirdly, a float also serves as a visual bite indicator. Fishing with a float is called float fishing.
  5. The float is a b-boying move in which the body is held parallel to the floor while balancing on one or both hands. Though it appears to demand great strength, the float actually requires balance above all because the breaker's weight is supported on the elbows which are firmly planted into the lower abdomen near the ASIS.
  6. Float: Liquid level floats, also known as float balls, are spherical, cylindrical, oblong or similarly shaped objects, made from either rigid or flexible material, that are buoyant in water and other liquids. They are non-electrical hardware frequently used as visual sight-indicators for surface demarcation and level measurement. They may also be incorporated into switch mechanisms or translucent fluid-tubes as a component in monitoring or controlling liquid level.
  7. Float: Floating is a bartending technique where a liquor or ingredient is layered at the top of a drink. The cocktails or shots produced with this technique are known as either a Pousse-café or a layered drink. Although the amount of alcohol used in a float is only about half an ounce, it enhances the tone flavor of the drink at hand.
  8. Float: A woodworking float, also called a planemaker's float, is a traditional woodworking tool generally used when making a wooden plane. The float is used to cut, flatten, and smooth key areas of wood by abrasion. Despite the name its woodworking uses go well beyond planemaking.
    • also known as Planemaker's Float
  9. Float: A float is a form of two-wheeled horse-drawn cart with a dropped axle to give an especially low loadbed.
