Rome, June 27 - Interest rates rose on Italian
bonds at two Treasury auctions on Thursday.
The Treasury sold 2.5 billion euros' worth of 10-year BTP
bonds at an average interest rate of 4.55%, up from 4.14% at the
last auction in May.
It also sold all 2.5 billion euros' worth of the five-year
BTPs that it put on the market, at an average rate of 3.47%,
compared to 3.01% at the May sale.
Although the rates were up, the spread between the 10-year
Italian bond and the German benchmark fell after the auctions,
dropping to 283 points, after opening the day at 287 points,
with a yield on the secondary market of 4.56%.
The spread is an important measure of Italy's borrowing
costs and investor confidence in the country.
