About that Spanish bank downgrade…

Yes, it is definitely happening and it looks comprehensive.

The FT’s Madrid correspondent, former Alphavillan Miles Johnson writes…

Moody’s is preparing a sweeping downgrade of the Spanish sector likely to be announced as early as tonight, several lenders told the FT.

It was not clear which specific banks would suffer, but was thought to include at least the majority of the country’s larger banks.

We should add that Expansion first sniffed this out last night.
