Markets not badly affected by downgrade - analyst

4 April 2017 1:10 PM

Standard & Poor's downgraded South Africa's credit rating to junk status or double B plus but markets factored in the inevitable.

Political analyst, Nic Borain, says the downgrade by the international rating agency, Standard & Poor's, has not had a profound effect on the market. He believes the markets had factored in the inevitable.

International rating agency, Standard & Poor's, announced that it had downgraded South Africa's sovereign credit rating to junk status or double B plus on Monday.

The markets have not responded catastrophically and I think they are able to make the case that this was going to happen anyway.
