Spread closes 11 down on 160 (2)

Yield down to 1.90%

(ANSA) - Rome, September 7 - 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 11 points down on 160 points Thursday, with the yield down 0.15% to 1.90%.
    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.
