A trans-atlantic cable used for communication brought about a popular term for one of the most looked at prices in the financial world. What was the name and what was it for?

As usual, the rules remain the same, this question is work-outable; you don’t need to Google, and doing so, would be cheating. Post your answers in the comments.
