Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Mandated selling because of downgrades will provide "panic mode" data points (i.e. lots of sellers and few buyers), which will feed on themselves in a vicious circle. The unwinding can only be painful, precisely because of these trigger mechanisms, which force transactions to take place and 'shine light' on the whole sorry mess, whose sudden visibility in turn makes the crisis real and feeds it.
