Spread closes 5 pts up on 169 (2)

Yield edges up to 2.14%

(ANSA) - Rome, October 2 - 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 five points up on 169 points Monday, with the yield up 0.05% to 2.14%. 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.
