Moody's has lowered its outlook on Germany, The Netherlands, and Luxembourg to Negative, while affirming Finland's Stable outlook and AAA credit rating. The ratings agency cites the usual fears related to the eurozone's debt crisis, along with the "increasing likelihood that greater collective support" will be needed for Spain and Italy. Moody's downgraded Italy's rating by two notches earlier this month, and subsequently downgraded 10 Italian banks.
