Who is going to downgrade these Rating Agencies for life ?


Seeking to shape our destiny and determine the future of our children, somewhere I read that Greek prime minister said this in a Government website about the Rating Agencies.

Now if I go back in past, If I am not wrong, S&P, Moody’s, Fitch all maintained at least their “A” ratings on Lehman Brothers and AIG, up until mid-September of 2008. What happened next ?
Lehman Brothers declared bankruptcy in 15th September 2008 and probably, U.S. government provided first bail-out to AIG in 17th September, 2008.

Remember year 2007, when Sub-Prime market and related Mortgage market collapsed in U.S. These rating agencies issued big ratings on those instruments which are later considered as Junk. Most of these Agencies have done same thing with Bear Stearns. What about Enron – rating agencies have waited months to say anything about it.
There are lots of individual evidences though I do not have much data. One of my friend from U.S. suggested me if I need more then what about –  Wachovia Bank, Countrywide Financial, Washington Mutual ……………….

Now what happened to these rating agencies?  Did anyone suspend them?   Has anyone taken any action against these agencies to put this kind of famous grades on products those were junks ?

No, nothing has happened yet against them. Sometime I feel that they are getting some help form unknown phantom. One of my friends said me that they are working for some countries!

Believe me everyone just manifest that something needed to be done against them. If I am not wrong some statement came few weeks ago from China against these rating agencies.
Talk-time is over, now it is the time of deliver. We need to downgrade these rating agencies for lifetime.

DAX forecast for coming week ended 15th March, 2013.

This week was very good for Dax, though it is getting resistance at 8100 range. Now it has a chance to test downside again. I think even if Dax tests lower levels, it has more chance to bounce back from around 7800 range and therefore it will again test upside.

On the other hand if it shows flat movements around 8000 range in initial days of the coming week then there is a chance that it may take a decisive call in later days. Considering the recent trends it has the chance to test higher levels may be around 8200 but that will be a very aggressive call after taking in to account the movement from last December. I will worry about the downside when Dax will be testing levels below 7600 ranges.

Fed’s rate hike Vs Sovereign rating up gradation

Financial market is very much worried about the rate hike in US, probably this is going to come in coming December. But I think that is not going to change much of the things. Even Fed hikes rate in December it will be not so much, because we are forgetting one thing that interest rate in US is around zero so even they hike rate by 0.25-50% basis points (at most) in this year that will not be enough cause for Dollars to change their locations around the world especially markets have already discounted this coming rate hike in US.

A new disaster is coming in EU banking sector, whom to blame, big Audit firms!

First I was thinking what should be the title of this posting? Will it be good if I write that big audit firms set the time for EU bank collapse! If someone is thinking that financial crisis is over then think twice because the coming EU banking crisis is no way less than 2008 financial crisis. The time bomb will explode at some point of time in future, the time has not yet set for it. In that tsunami, forget about the smaller if any major banks collapse then I will not be surprise.
