Add City National Bank to the list. It's down as well. And they are a very good California bank, too.

I wouldn't worry too much about this at this point. This has happened once before with many banking institutions. My online trading company, Zecco, is up and functioning now.

Very strange. The Dutch bank ING has maintenance planned for today and tomorrow but other banks appear to be working here. Are they trying to prevent a bank run?

I have a Scottrade account, and just checked it. No mention of any shutdown, and the site seemed to be working normally. No web messages about service warnings or anything. So.........

Friends, I didn't want to muck-up this important thread, which I've already starred and flagged.

Could this be a catalyst to something MUCH bigger? Please read THIS THREAD and chime in.

Wow whatever happend it seemed to hit small and large banks all across America and Europe. I have no idea to what may have caused this event. Hopefully we can get some information has to what happend but that is definitely a little to optimistic.

I hate to spoil the party, but has it been considered that banks woudl co-ordinate any major upgrades or maintenance so as to avoid transactions going amiss? Just a though.

But what would these major updates be?
Have they done such an organized update before?

How strange for all financial online sites to be down at the same time. I've never seen it before, but that doesn't mean it hasn't happened before.

Taken by itself, this would be an excellent observation - and it still has merit, even with everything else that is swirling around. It could very well be that they coordinate their schedules to avoid bouncing payments and whatnot...However, this would seem to only be valid if EVERY bank and port-of-transaction (I.E. - card readers at stores, gas stations and the like) were offline for the same time, which was not the case.

I would think that the bailouts came with some cuts in service to the consumer, including contracting out ITS. So routine computer maintenance would be consolidated and backend work would be done at one time at the end of the month. But it is frightening to think that all those banks are vulnerable to cyberterrorism if that is the case.

Could also be that security measures were put into place because of cyberterrorism threats. We are getting close to 2010 and it's critical that everyone prepare. This could be a wake up call we needed to get our finances in the right place.
