Re: 3, 6, 12-mos Libor Index, which would be a better indicator of the direction of the 1-mos Libor Index? Why?

The 1 month LIBOR compared to the 3-month would be the best comparison. The 3, 6 & 12 month LIBOR index are all an average of the 1 month LIBOR. So if the 1 month LIBOR is lower than the 3, 6, & 12 month, then the LIBOR index would have declined over the past 3 months... thus you would know the 3, 6 & 12 month LIBOR indexes would also be expected to decline.
