Update (1750ET): Treasury Secretary Yellen is pissed, calling the downgrade �arbitrary� and �outdated.�!
�I strongly disagree with Fitch Ratings� decision. The change by Fitch Ratings announced today is arbitrary and based on outdated data. Fitch�s quantitative ratings model declined markedly between 2018 and 2020 � and yet Fitch is announcing its change now, despite the progress that we see in many of the indicators that Fitch relies on for its decision. Many of these measures, including those related to governance, have shown improvement over the course of this Administration, with the passage of bipartisan legislation to address the debt limit, invest in infrastructure, and make other investments in America�s competitiveness.

"Moscow is rapidly getting used to a full-fledged war, which, in turn, will soon finally move to the territory of the "authors of the war" to collect all their debts �
"Everything that will happen in Russia is an objective historical process. More unidentified drones, more collapse, more civil conflicts, more war..."

seeking alpha oozing delight:
Stocks are beginning August with some major gains, with the benchmark S&P 500 Index (SP500) soaring 20% so far in 2023. That's the best seven months to start a year since 1997, with markets expecting the Fed to soon turn the corner on its fight against inflation. The tech rebound and AI frenzy have helped to further underpin the big gains, with the Nasdaq Composite (COMP.IND) ahead by 37% to record its best first seven months to a year since 1975, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI) has also been on a serious winning streak since early July.
Throwing in the towel: Morgan Stanley strategist Mike Wilson, who has been bearish on equities through the 2023 rally, now sees a late-cycle rally driven by monetary policy. "In our view, the positive policy impact has been supported by a very strong fiscal impulse, a still supportive global liquidity backdrop and optimism that the Fed can now transition to easier monetary policy given the falling inflation data. These developments fostered a robust rally [in 2019] that was driven almost exclusively by multiple and not earnings, as has been the case this year."

that is a pretty sanguine quipp about BoJ and "the benchmark Japanese government bond yield" Stephen (curr.: .60%)
IFM says japan debt to gdp is around 260% - and expected to bloat.
It is not a secret Speculators and the BoJ are playing an unfriendly game of poker. The unfriendly part seems to center around the BoJ's extreme dislike about price "surges" or "sudden spikes" and Speculators penchant for fluctuations.
