Spread closes 2 pts up on 167 (2)

Yield edges up to 2.04%

(ANSA) - Rome, September 6 - 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 two points up on 167 points Wednesday, with the yield up 0.01% to 2.04%.
    The lower the spread is, the better it is for the Italian economy and debt-servicing costs.
    The spread rose above 200 points recently on EU populist fears.
