Money supply is divided usually into 3 or 4 levels of classification. M0, M1, M2 and sometimes M3. M0 for instance is just currency whereas M1 is currency and checking accounts, M2 is currency, checking and savings and some CDs, and M3 is almost all money accounts that are liquid in the short to medium run.

M0 = narrow
M3 = broad
