 Euro feds: Eurodollars transmitted over the Fed wire instead of through Chips. Normally Euro Feds move from a foreign branch of one U.S. bank to a foreign branch of another U.S. bank, for example, from Citi Nassau to Morgan London. Foreign banks use CHIPS, not the Fed wire, to pay and receive Euros because they may not run daylight overdrafts at the Fed.

 Settlement risk: Banks and other financial intermediaries send most of their wholesale payments either through Fedwire or Clearing House InterBank Payment System (Chips). All claims sent on CHIPS clear at the end of the day. If a bank were to fail during the day, or send funds it does not yet have, this can create a chain of settlement problems for other banks who rely on these incoming funds.
