S&P cuts Belgium's credit rating to AA

by Calculated Risk on 11/25/2011 01:23:00 PM

Just a headline on Belgium ... I guess S&P noticed the Belgian bond yields are moving up sharply.

Also something we discussed this morning, from Bloomberg: Italian, Spanish Yield Curves Start Looking Greek: Euro Credit

Spain and Italy face paying more to borrow for two years than for a decade, echoing shifts that presaged bailouts in Greece and Portugal and suggesting skepticism about their new governments avoiding contagion.
The Italian 2 year yield is at 7.66%. And the ten year yield is at 7.26%.

But the Spanish curve is not inverted yet. The Spanish 2 year yield is at 6.09%, and the ten year yield is at 6.7%.
