Markets Are Preparing For Spain To Get Downgraded!

Markets are bracing for a possible downgrade of Spanish government debt to ‘junk’ status.

Ratings agency Moody’s is due to release its decision after a review of Spain’s credit rating wrapped up on Friday.

Analysts widely believe a decision will be forthcoming and that the outcome is unlikely to be positive.

Spain’s credit rating currently sits one notch above ‘junk’ status.

Any downgrade would have severe consequences for the country, as some investors can’t hold non-investment grade debt.
