Continued confidence in long-term U.S. debt is defying S&P's recent downgrade. Treasury yields continue at their lowest levels since January 1, 2011 as the market moved to "safe investments" weary of the storm clouds ahead. Winds can change however, as a last-minute move to save the U.S. from a historic default on its debt obligations. Attentions are now turned to the situation in Europe, with the health of the Euro in the balance; bankers are looking to prevent defaults on Italian and Spanish debt.
