There was enormous tension on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange this morning, the first market to open worldwide after S&P announced that it was downgrading the US credit rating from AAA to AA+. The TASE was expected to fall sharply not only because of the downgrading but also because of losses on global markets on Friday, when the Israeli market was closed.
Opening of trading was delayed until 10.45 am with the Tel Aviv 25 Index down 6% in pre-market trading. Shortly after trading began, the Tel Aviv 25 Index was down 4.8% at 1099.67 points.
