Fitch Says U.S. Rating Still Unlikely to Change Until 2013

Fitch Ratings said its negative outlook on the U.S.’s AAA credit ranking is still unlikely to change before late 2013 as it waits to assess any deficit-reduction plans following this year’s elections.

While the U.S.’s top grade is “underpinned” by factors including the nation’s diversified and productive economy and financial flexibility from the dollar’s status as the reserve currency, the outlook “reflects the risks associated with the lack of broad public and political agreement on how to secure deficit reduction,” Fitch said July 10 in a statement.
