    The financial markets tremble when the rating agencies disclose their ratings about the credit worth of a country. Government leaders lose their sleep over the rating of their country. But often the ratings of Moody's, S & P's and Fitch were incorrect. "It's just like making a rough estimate, giving a credit rating to a country is nothing but a board game." - Jerome Fons (Former Director of Moody's). The rating agencies, or credit assessors, are all over the news. Recently, there has been many downgrades of mainly European countries and companies. With as a consequence troubled financial markets and governments that are getting deeper in financial trouble. Reducing a country's credit rating can have such major consequences that government leaders, if their credit rating is at stake, are ...

What is CREDIT RATING AGENCY? What does CREDIT RATING AGENCY mean? CREDIT RATING AGENCY meaning - CREDIT RATING AGENCY definition - CREDIT RATING AGENCY explanation.

A credit rating agency (CRA, also called a ratings service) is a company that assigns credit ratings, which rate a debtor's ability to pay back debt by making timely interest payments and the likelihood of default. An agency may rate the creditworthiness of issuers of debt obligations, of debt instruments, and in some cases, of the servicers of the underlying debt, but not of individual consumers. The debt instruments rated by CRAs include government bonds, corporate bonds, CDs, municipal bonds, preferred stock, and collateralized securities, such as mortgage-backed securities and collateralized debt obligations. The issuers of the obligations or securities may be companies, special purpose entities, state or local governments, non-profit organizations, or sovereign nations. A credit rating facilitates the trading of securities on a secondary market. It affects the interest rate that a security pays out, with higher ratings leading to lower interest rates. Individual consumers are rated for creditworthiness not by credit rating agencies but by credit bureaus (also called consumer reporting agencies or credit reference agencies), which issue credit scores. The value of credit ratings for securities has been widely questioned. Hundreds of billions of securities that were given the agencies' highest ratings were downgraded to junk during the financial crisis of 2007–08. Rating downgrades during the European sovereign debt crisis of 2010–12 were blamed by EU officials for accelerating the crisis. Credit rating is a highly concentrated industry, with the "Big Three" credit rating agencies controlling approximately 95% of the ratings business. Moody's Investors Service and Standard & Poor's (S&P) together control 80% of the global market, and Fitch Ratings controls a further 15%.

'The financial crisis may be behind us, but these cases are an important reminder that the race-to-the-bottom behavior exists even though the financial crisis has ended.' S&P said in a statement that it did not admit or deny any of the charges. It's likely the first in a line of settlements between S&P and government agencies. In 2013, the Justice Department and attorneys general from other states filed civil lawsuits against the company for misrepresenting risks in the years leading up to the financial crisis.

And the first ever set of cryptocurrency grades from a ratings agency will be released this Wednesday the 24th of January **Story - Lightning Watch** 0:48 https://lnmainnet.gaben.win/# https://p2sh.info/dashboard/db/lightning-network?orgId=1 https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/14EN_vpbeLeQNFTNJ8DJbayZX33wlRINW-oQfJjveScI/edit?usp=sharing Despite these stats, use of Segwit remains at 12% of all Bitcoin transactions on the main network. I personally would expect that to increase as more wallets and services adopt Lightning. While the Lightning stats are great, as far as I understand it, there’s no way for us to know how much value is being transacted because the signatures are being privately swapped between the two parties. **Story - Weiss Will Begin Rating Cryptocurrencies On Wednesday** 4:30 https://weissratings.com/ Martin Weiss is the founder of Weiss Ratings. It’s a financial rating agency so they research stocks, funds, banks etc and do their best to give an objective rating in terms of the risks and rewards. They are set to become the first rating agency in the world to release Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency gradings. According to this countdown on their website, they are set to release their first batch of tradings on Wednesday morning. So they have built a computer model that grades each cryptocurrency by computing a whole range of factors to arrive at an overall rating. They are going to arrive at this overall rating by grading in 4 different categories. Risk index, how low could it go Reward index, how high could it go Technology index, looks at the source code, scalability, robustness, flexibility Fundamental index, adoption and security. The reality test, are people using to use it, is it performing in the real world. The result is that each cryptocurrency will get a grade from A to F like every other financial instrument that they grade. But bear in mind they have built a computer model that is going to be constantly adjusting the grade as it gathers new information. So those are the facts, what are the implications? I think this is going to be very popular because it’s a shortcut through the ungodly amounts of information in the cryptocurrency space. While no one should rely on this grading as the one piece of information, I am certainly going to include it as one data point to check when doing research. The downside I suppose is that BECAUSE so many people will be looking at this grade, it is likely to have a disproportionate amount of power. While Weiss Ratings publicly states that it does not accept financial compensation from the entities it rates, unlike Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s, Fitch and AM Best there are other possible attack vectors. For example, what’s the stop them loading up on A grade coins prior to the release of their research? They can say they are not doing any trading but there’s no easier market to trade anonymously than crypto. Early access to rating information gives them a chance to get positioned in the market before anyone else. I’m not questioning the integrity of Weiss Ratings specifically, I’m just pointing out an attack vector that would apply to any such rating agency. I will be reporting on the results anyway, however if you want the news the instant it is released then go to this page: http://finance.weissratings.com/crypto/ Enter your email and they’ll send you a message when it’s ready. I’m going to make a prediction and say that EOS is going to get an A or a B. On Wednesday we’ll see if that prediction is right or wrong. **Story - Price Dip Yesterday** The recovery was briefly interrupted by a price dip yesterday. As far as I know it was just some nonsense about Indian banks starting to close accounts that were sending and receiving money from cryptocurrency exchanges. The overall market cap has stabilized now and there’s a mix of single digit gains and losses in the top 20 coins.

On Aug. 5, America's credit rating was cut from AAA to a AA+ by the ratings agency Standard & Poor's. The following Monday, the Dow Jones Industrials Average fell more than five percent. That's got people wondering exactly what a ratings agency is, and why it's so powerful. Senior Editor Paddy Hirsch explains.

The financial markets tremble when the rating agencies disclose their ratings about the credit worth of a country. Government leaders lose their sleep over the rating of their country. But often the ratings of Moody's, S & P's and Fitch were incorrect. "It's just like making a rough estimate, giving a credit rating to a country is nothing but a board game." - Jerome Fons (Former Director of Moody's). The rating agencies, or credit assessors, are all over the news. Recently, there has been many downgrades of mainly European countries and companies. With as a consequence troubled financial markets and governments that are getting deeper in financial trouble. Reducing a country's credit rating can have such major consequences that government leaders, if their credit rating is at stake, are begging on the phone with the credit rating agencies. Who are these credit rating agencies actually? What do they base their credit ratings on? And are the numbers in the reports they assign to companies and countries correct? For more insight into the power of credit rating agencies, VPRO backlight spoke with Jerome Fons, ex-director of Moody's, David Levey, former head of the Moody's European Country Awards, Timothy Sinclair, Professor of Political Economics at the University of Warwick, and Dirk Müller, former stockbroker at the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.
