Investors Worldwide Take S&P’s European Downgrades In Stride

The European Financial Stability Facility issued six-month debt for the first time Tuesday, selling a healthy $1.9 billion worth of securities a day after the fund lost its top credit rating, BusinessWeek reported.

S&P’s bailout fund downgrade was a consequence of its previous European downgrades, since the fund is backed by the credit of member countries.
