M2 includes a broader set of financial assets held principally by households. M2 consists of M1 plus:
(1) savings deposits (which include money market deposit accounts, or MMDAs);
(2) small-denomination time deposits (time deposits in amounts of less than $100,000);
and (3) balances in retail money market mutual funds (MMMFs).

Seasonally adjusted M2 is computed by summing savings deposits, small-denomination time deposits, and retail MMMFs, each seasonally adjusted separately, and adding this result to seasonally adjusted M1.

Current reading $9258.9 Billion versus $8596.1 a year ago.
