Spread between Italian and German bonds up to 289 points

(ANSA) – Rome, April 26 - The yield spread between 10-year Italian bonds and the German benchmark equivalents, rose to 290 points on Friday with 10-year yields at 4.1%, after US Gross Domestic Product (GDP) data was released below market expectations. The spread is considered by investors to be a barometer of Italy's borrowing costs in the eurozone crisis. The spread between Spanish benchmark bonds and their German equivalents is currently at 307 points. US GDP figures showed growth in the first quarter at a lower-than-expected 2.5% annual expansion.
