For more analysis on the reaction in capital markets, let's get back to Mr. Ding Yifan.

1. Global markets have been hammered. It started with debt concerns in Europe and America, and then S&P's downgrade was the final blow, sending markets into a tailspin. Are investors over reacting?

2. What are the chances the other two ratings agencies, Moody's and Fitch, following suit? Cutting their rating of US debt?

3. So far, Treasury yields seem fairly stable. But IF the US credit rating is cut by all three agencies, what would happen? What would the effects be on China and the rest of Asia?
