S&P downgrades Greece to selective default
In an unsurprising headline, reflected by the marginal losses in EUR/USD since the news broke, the rating agency S&P has downgraded Greece’s long-term debt rating to selective default from CCC. Greece is technically default. The Greek government invitation to private sector bondholders involvement to participate in the debt buybacks program triggered the decision by S&P. However, according to Jamie McGeever, Editor and presenter at Reuters TV, “once Greek buyback is done, probably on or around Dec 17, selective default will be over, so S&P will likely lift Greece back to CCC rating.”

British Chancellor George Osborne delivered his Autumn Budget Statement before the parliament on Wednesday. He emphasized that the Eurozone debt crisis had been weighing on the UK economy and informed that the Office of Budget Responsibility slashed its GDP forecast to -0.1% in 2012 from +0.8%. The predictions for 2012 and 2013 are 1.2% and 2.0%, respectively. – FXstreet.com
