Italian spread steady after rate soars at bond auction


(see related stories on political situation)
Rome, February 27 - The spread between the 10-year
Italian bond and the German benchmark remained relatively stable
on Wednesday despite interest rates rising sharply in a Treasury
auction of state paper that was seen as a key test of investor
sentiment after Italy's general election failed to produce a
clear winner.
The spread stood at 345 basis points at around 12.30 local
time, one point higher than its closing level on Tuesday.
The spread, a key measure of Italy's borrowing costs, had
fallen to 340 before the auction, having gained over 50 points
on Tuesday.
The interest rate on 10-year Italian bonds soared to 4.83%
at Wednesday's auction, the highest level since October.
It was 4.17% at the last equivalent auction in January
The rate on five-year bonds went up to 3.59%, compared to
2.94% at last month's auction.
