      •  Take some of their cash (0+ / 0-)

        out of long-term investments or currency speculation or whatever, and have it on hand,  so that they can readily cash an unusually large number of withdrawals during a certain period.  

        In any case I am certain that the checking and savings of ordinary small-potatoes consumers is chump change to them now.  They are too busy betting high on the big, big roulette wheel in the sky to have time for ordinary retail banking.
