Spain ATM withdrawals see biggest fall in 10 years

Spain ATM withdrawals see biggest fall in 10 years

The amount of cash withdrawn from automatic teller machines in Q4 of last year declined 4.5% from the same period a year earlier, the biggest fall over the past decade, according to figures released Monday by the Bank of Spain.

Spain has slipped into its 2nd recession in 4 years, with the downturn deepening in the final quarter of 2012.

ATM withdrawals are a barometer of economic activity. From the start of 2000 when the economy was motoring along, cash taken out grew at a rate close to 5.5%. It fell 2.88% in 2009 when Spain was locked in the worst downturn in living memory and recovered over the following 2 years as the country pulled out of recession again.
