- Could raise Cyprus' rating as early as next week.
- This follows Fitch earlier who affirmed Cyprus's long-term foreign currency IDR; outlook negative but downgrades their local currency IDR to 'restricted default' from 'CCC'.
- These rating changes are in response to the exchange of a number of domestic law government bonds by the Cypriot government.
- No movement seen in EUR/USD following this downgrade, as it follows Fitch earlier today and is largely expected.
