Second, and more important, ratings are by their nature backward-looking. They fall only after the problems of a borrower are obvious and demonstrable. So they should catch markets by surprise only if investors haven’t been doing their homework.

Which is exactly why ratings are worthless.

Who pays the rating agencies ?
While getting my feet wet day trading, a month or so prior to the prick, I used MANY different rating agencies.
EVERY SINGLE FUCKING ONE OF THEM WAS BULLISH ALL THE WAY DOWN !
