(ANSA) - Rome, September 27 - The interest rates on Italian
bonds fell sharply at an important auction on Thursday, when the
Treasury sold 5.65 billion euros worth of State paper, which was
short of the maximum target of six billion.
The average rate paid on 10-year bonds dropped to 5.24%
from 5.82% at an equivalent auction in August.
The average rate given for five-year BTPs slid to 4.09%
from 4.73% last time.
The auction was hotly awaited after Italian bonds came
under pressure on the secondary market on Wednesday, when the
spread between 10-year BTPs and the German benchmark jumped up
by 24 basis points amid speculation Spain is close to requesting
EU rescue funds.
