Italian bonds drop to lowest levels since 2010 at auction

Rome, January 30 - The interest rates on Italian bonds dropped to their lowest levels in over two years on Thursday, when the latest in a series of successful auctions gave another signal that pressure is easing on the country's borrowing costs. The Treasury sold 6.5 billion euros worth of five-year and 10-year BTP bonds. The average interest rate set for the 10-year bonds was 4.17%, the lowest since October 2010 and down from 4.48% at the last equivalent auction in December. The rate on the five-year bond dropped to 2.94%, again the lowest since 2010, and down from 3.26% last time.
