Rome, March 28 - The spread between Italian 10-year
bonds and the German benchmark bund widened 10 points early
Thursday to hit 360.
The psychologically important marker is a sign of stress on
Italian debt, which has sparked rumors of a downgrade from
ratings agencies amid political uncertainty.
The yield, another important indicator of investor
confidence in Italy's ability to weather the eurozone debt
crisis, was 4.85%.
Pier Luigi Bersani, the head of Italy's center left, must
report on his progress in forming a new government later
Thursday, but the situation does not look positive after late
February elections produced inconclusive results and a hung
parliament.
The uncertainty has weighed on Italy's main financial
market, where the FTSE-Mib fell by 0.55% in early trading driven
mostly to bank losses.
