Negotiating Analyst Salary During COVID-19 Good Idea?

Hello Everyone,

Wanted to get some feedback on whether It's a good idea to negotiate banking salaries during these times.

I finished the second round of interviews with Wells Fargo about 2 weeks ago and the last question was about salary expectations. I gave a good number based on my old position and research. If I get an offer should I negotiate?

This is a Analyst 2 Position In Their Commercial Capital Department. I Have 3 Years of analyst experience In Corporate Finance. Thanks!
