Rating Downgrade Boosts Pressure on Spain to Seek Aid (Reuters)

S&P cut Spain’s sovereign debt rating to just above junk.

Standard & Poor’s cut Spain’s sovereign debt rating to just one notch above junk, a move that raises the nation’s borrowing costs and increase pressure on it to seek a bailout, Reuters reports.

S&P cut Spain’s rating two notches, from BBB-plus to BBB-minus, and is maintaining a negative outlook. The downgrade brings S&P’s rating into line with Moody’s.
