Rome, October 12 – The spread between Italian and German 10-year bond yields, a gauge of Italy’s borrowing costs and of market confidence in the Italian economy, closed three points down on 166 points Thursday, with the yield down 0.04% to 2.10%. The lower the spread is, the better it is for the Italian economy and debt-servicing costs. The spread rose above 200 points earlier this year on EU populist fears.
