Abstract: We use EU sovereign bond yield and CDS spreads daily data to carry out an event study analysis on the reaction of government yield spreads before and after announcements from rating agencies (Standard & Poor's, Moody's, Fitch). Our results show: significant responses of government bond yield spreads to changes in rating notations and outlook, particularly in the case of negative announcements; unanticipated announcements; bi-directional causality between ratings and spreads; spillover effects especially from lower rated countries to higher rated countries; and amplification effects for recently downgraded countries."
