The Young Raging Bull

Moody’s Investors Service downgraded the ratings late Thursday of 15 financial firms with global capital-markets operations from one to three notches.

Among those affected were Bank of America Corp., Barclays PLC, Citigroup Inc., Credit Suisse Group AG, Goldman Sachs Group Inc., HSBC Holdings PLC , J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., Morgan Stanley, Royal Bank of Scotland Group PLC, Credit Agricole SA, BNP Paribas, Deutsche Bank AG, Royal Bank of Canada, Societe Generale and UBS AG.
