Treasury sells eight billion euros worth of six-month BOTs

Interest rates down in successful Italian bond auction

Rome, October 29 - Interest rates dropped significantly on Monday in a successful auction of six-month BOT Italian State bonds. The Treasury sold all of the eight million euros worth of bonds it put up for auction and the average interest rate fixed was 1.347%, compared to 1.503% at a similar sale last month. The auction was hotly awaited for signs of a possible impact on investor confidence after Silvio Berlusconi threatened to bring down Premier Mario Monti's emergency government at the weekend.
