European markets edge up, spreads stable


(ANSA) - Milan, September 25 - European stock markets nudged
slightly up Tuesday with the FTSE MIB up 0.41%, London's
FTSE-100 gaining 0.36% and the Paris CAC 40 edging forward
Frankfurt's DAX and Madrid's Ibex 35 were nearly flat with
gains of 0.16% and 0.09% respectively.
Bond spreads on the secondary market suffered jitters on a
day that saw bond issues for both Italy and Spain - two
countries at the center of Europe's sovereign debt crisis.
By the day's end, however, the market had stabilized nearly
to Monday's levels.
The spread between yields on Italian and German 10-year
bonds in the secondary market closed at 351 basis points on
Tuesday, after rising over 360 during the day.
The spread between the rate on Spanish bonds and the German
benchmark closed at 416 basis points after reaching a high of
Italian and Spanish bond spreads are an important gauge of
market confidence in those countries' abilities to pay down
their huge public debts.
