There is strong indication that a "BANK HOLIDAY" under a declaration of an economic emergency may be declared in the U.S. sometime within the next 2 weeks and possibly as early as Saturday 10/4/2008.
The information indicates that it may be announced to last a week or two and that all banks and financial institutions will close during that period. No access to your deposits will be possible, atms will not work, credit cards will not work, and brokerage accounts will not be accessible either.
This would be done under a state of martial law though troops may not appear on all streets immediately under the faint hope that the populace will simply accept these matters, but the banks and financial institutions will be heavily guarded whether overtly visible or not.
