Spread closes 2 up on 144 (2)

Yield steady on 1.77%

(ANSA) - Rome, November 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 144 points Monday, with the yield steady at 1.77%.
    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.
