The monthly average is a simple arithmetic average corresponding to the sum of the daily overnight repo rates divided by the number of calendar days in the month. Weekend and holiday rates are considered to be the rate applicable on the previous business day for which a rate was reported. For example, Friday's rate is used for Saturday and Sunday rates. The final settlement price is determined on the first business day following the last day of trading.
