Spread closes 3 down on 166 (2)

Yield 2.10%

(ANSA) - 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.
