The Euro Downgrade already discounted by the Bonds Markets

Marc Faber : in general I would say the news follows events in other words the downgrades were already discounted by the bonds markets in Europe and when the news came out it had no impact actually the market was kind of relieved , it's like when a war break out if prior to the war the market has already discounted it went down strongly then on the war news the market then shoots up , on the other hand if some event happened completely unexpectedly the market can sell off , but in general I think now in Europe the bad news has been now largely discounted and the market participants they think that the problems cannot be resolved but they can be postponed , which involves essentially money printing either directly or through backdoor measures ....- in Fox Business News
