Just a quick note to my ZH friends that the banking system has been down this afternoon since about 11:30am for many banks in Texas and apparently Oklahoma.
I have confirmed this firsthand.
For example, some banks and credit unions in Texas were giving hand-written receipts for deposits, and limiting cash withdrawals to $300! Other banks were not making wire transfers for Friday payrolls of corporate customers.
Here is one message on a Credit Union website…
I am sure it is just a glitch, but maybe grab a screen cap or print a copy of your account balances tonight. You might also consider visiting your financial institution in the morning, and try a withdrawal, just to see what is really going on. If that doesn’t go well, better top off the fuel tanks and raise the threat level.
Probably nothing to worry about. Although, there do seem to be a lot of these internet outages lately.
If you are worried and looking for something to do over the weekend, consider this inventory.
