On the bond market, the Rizzo Farrugia MGS Index was in positive territory for the fifth time in six sessions with a further 0.1 per cent rise to yet another two-year high of 1,002.128 points as Eurozone yields continued to track backwards towards the 1.37 per cent level.
However, by this afternoon, the benchmark 10-year German Bund yield approached the 1.4 per cent level after Italy comfortably concluded its final bond auction for the year reflecting the recent increase in demand for peripheral sovereign paper.
In fact, in line with the declining yields in Eurozone peripheral countries, Italy’s 10-year yields hovered around their respective two-year lows.
