BRITAIN-STOCKS-FOREX-EUROPE

An illustrative picture backlit using a flashgun in London on February 25, 2013 shows a British 20 pound bank note. Moody's stripped Britain of its triple-A debt rating after markets closed on February 22, 2013, saying government debt was still mounting and that growth was too weak to reverse the trend before 2016 -- heaping more pressure on the pound. After hitting a fresh low-point on February 22, the pound recovered in trading in London to reach 1.5143 USD on February 25, compared with 1.5162 USD on February 22.
