Cash is something everyone looks for during times of economic hardship and right now banks are struggling to provide liquidity. During Wednesday morning’s trading sessions, global stock markets and futures continue to lose ground. The price of oil has plummeted even further from last week and is at its lowest value per barrel in 17 years. The price of crude oil is hovering around $43 per barrel and Goldman Sachs predicts the price will drop to $20 per barrel soon. Oil prices have already begun to hurt people within the gas industry as 3,500 Halliburton employees from the North Belt facility in Houston have been laid off due to the price decline. While facing massive layoffs in industries like airlines, tourism, and construction, people are in search of hard cash to help hold them over through the economic storm. reported on how in the Hamptons, New York’s elite have been going to banks and asking to withdraw large sums of cash. According to reports, banks like Chase, JPMorgan and Bank of America (BoA) have been limiting withdrawals. This is because the rich from New York have been asking for $30-50K withdrawals so banks have created a limit between $3-10K in some areas. During the market massacre on March 12, Manhattan Bank temporarily ran low on $100 bills after a large rush for cash. A BoA spokesperson told the public that there were only issues with large denominations and individuals are able to withdraw $20-50 notes. “We don’t keep large amounts of cash in big bills in the branches because it’s dangerous for our employees and there is low demand,” BoA stated.

Tatiana Koffman @tatianakoffmanank of America is limiting cash withdrawals to $3,000. Expect that number to drop over the next few days.

There are people complaining on social media about the withdrawal limits from certain banks in the U.S over the last few days. “Go to the bank today and ask to withdraw your entire balance,” one individual tweeted on March 17. “They are refusing to give out more than $5,000 — Even if your account has $20k. Even if your normal withdrawal limit is $10,000 daily.” On March 14, a person from New York tweeted: “Food chain is broken. Went to Stop & Shop [and] shelves are empty. Meats gone. No more eggs — [and] the bank would only permit a $2,500 limit per day withdrawal.” Another Twitter post shows a man visiting Chase bank and recording a video of a manager refusing to give him $5K. Moreover, the branch manager from Chase asked the person to delete the video. The man said:

Chase is insolvent — Bank run. [The bank] proceeded to lie to me to go around outside the drive-thru without my mask and she would give me the $5K promised earlier ($2K rationed per customer). I did so and they refused to give me it — Manager demanded I delete the video.

Mr. Backwards ®®@Coin_SharkStarting from today I’ll start to withdraw cash amounts until I reach a buffer of 6 months for living expenses. 

Keep in mind that governments:

- will discourage cash withdrawals
- can ban the usage of cash payments 

All because they’re shit scared of an impending #bankrun
