"Moody's Investors Service downgraded six European nations and became the first ratings firm to warn the U.K.'s rating could be at risk, citing the area's weakening ability to implement measures aimed at reducing debt...Where Moody's did deviate from recent actions by other ratings firms was in changing the outlook for the U.K. There had been no indication the U.K.'s outlook was necessarily in danger based on how other ratings firms view U.K.'s debt. Both S&P and Fitch have a stable outlook on their U.K. rating." [WSJ]
