The measure known as M2 fell to a seasonally adjusted $3,498.6 billion from a revised $3,506.4 billion the previous week. A broader measure, M3, fell to a seasonally adjusted $4,173.3 billion from a revised $4,186.9 billion. The narrowest measure of the money supply, M1, fell to a seasonally adjusted $1,019.6 billion from $1,021.5 billion.
