“August is usually the quietest month of the year for the stock market. But Fitch shattered any sense of summer calm last night when it slashed the US government’s credit score, in what could end up being a massive blow to President Joe Biden’s economic track record.”
USAGOLD note: Biden’s track record wasn’t exactly glowing before the Fitch announcement. A good many analysts have warned of late that the government’s fiscal stance – and that includes both the Biden administration and Congress – has become a danger to the economy and financial markets. The yield on the 10-year Treasury jumped from 4.01% to 4.105% after the Fitch announcement.
