Final Answer

M1 is a money supply measure that comprises all physical money like currency and coins. It also includes Negotiable Order of Withdrawal (NOW) accounts, checking accounts and demand deposits. It determines the most liquid elements of the money supply, as it holds assets and cash which can be exchanged to currency very swiftly. It does not hold "near, near money" or "near, money" as other measures do like M2 and M3.
