Rome, August 13 - The spread between Italian 10-year
bonds and the benchmark German Bund continued to narrow
Wednesday to 239.1 basis points from 241.5 at Tuesday's close to
set a new two-year low.
The latest upswing was credited to a bigger-than-expected
rise in German investor confidence Tuesday and confidence that
figures due out Wednesday will show the eurozone is edging out
of recession.
The spread is a key gauge of investor faith in Italy's
ability to pay off its debt and emerge from economic crisis.
The yield was down to 4.21% in early trading, compared to
4.22% at the close of trading Tuesday.
The spread first hit a two-year low on Monday, at 245.5
points.
It was more than double that when then premier Silvio
Berlusconi was forced to step down in November, 2011 as fears of
a Greece-style financial meltdown loomed.
