Milan, other European markets all show gains Wednesday


Milan, April 24 - Encouraged by the nomination of a
new Italian premier, mandated to form a government, the
country's major financial exchange gained ground on Wednesday.
On the Milan Stock Exchange, the FTSE Mib rose by 0.44% to
close Wednesday's trading at 16,563 points.
Other European markets showed even greater gains, bolstered
by signs that the European Central Bank could cut its key
lending rate next week.
In Italy, markets showed signs of optimism after President
Giorgio Napolitano gave Enrico Letta of the Democratic Party
(PD) the mandate to form a new government.
That gave investors new hope of some political stability in
Italy, which helped to narrow the spread between Italian and
German debt.
The spread closed Wednesday's trading at 276 basis points,
just a bit wider than the previous day's close of 268 basis
The yield on ten-year Treasury bonds closed at 4.00%.
The spread between lending rates in the two countries is
seen as an indication of investor faith in the Italian economy
and its ability to cope with a lingering recession.
On other European markets:
Frankfurt's DAX rose by 1.32% to reach 7,759.03 points,
while Paris's CAC 40 jumped by 1.58%, closing at 3,842.94
points, and London's FTSE 100 ended the trading day 0.40%
higher, closing at 6,431.76.
Spain's IBEX 35 took a dramatic jump on the day, closing up
by 1.21% to close at 8,389.30 points.
