I personally think that the Dow is going to rally (anywhere between 50-300points on Monday). My reasons for this are that 1stly the 1,000points crash last week was based almost exclusively on the risk of *this happening, therefore a downgrade was already priced in. However MUCH MORE IMPORTANTLY something which most of the fools on here seem to have totally overlooked is the fact that the USA's credit rating HAS NOT ACTUALLY BEEN DOWNGRADED!! There are the 3 credit ref agencies that rate USA and others, and yes whilst 1 of them has downgraded USA 1 notch, BOTH of the other 2 agencies made the physical decision and choice to reject the option of downgrading usa, and instead both opted to ''re-affirm'' their rating of usa as AAA+. And so the fact that only 1 of 3 chose to downgrade means that the ''downgrade'' is totally meaningless and has no actualy physical or financial consequences on USA. (As the interest rate on the debt will not be affected since they (usa) are allowed to use the highest rating that they hold. And so until/unless ALL 3 agencies downgrade USA, there is no actual change.
