FRANKFURT, March 14 (Reuters) - The European Central Bank will launch its new overnight interest rate of bank-to-bank lending, called €str, on Oct. 2, the ECB said on Thursday.


"The European Central Bank (ECB) will start publishing the €STR as of 2 October 2019, reflecting the trading activity of 1 October 2019," the ECB said.


"Additionally, the ECB ... will provide the computation of a one-off spread between the €STR and EONIA, which was requested by the Working Group on Euro Risk-Free Rates."
