Spread closes 1 up on 142 (2)

Yield steady on 1.78%

(ANSA) - Rome, November 3 - 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 one points up on 142 points Friday, with the yield steady at 1.78%.
    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.
