Italy/Germany bond yield gap narrows on limited nationalist gains in EU vote


LONDON, May 27 (Reuters) - The gap between Italian and German bond yields narrowed to its lowest in over two weeks on Monday after parties committed to strengthening the European Union held onto two-thirds of seats in the EU parliament.

The closely-watched spread tightened to 264 basis points in early European trade, the lowest since May 9. DE10IT10=RR

That said, far-right and nationalist parties did make strong gains in the vote, so German 10-year Bund yields were anchored at -0.118%, close to 2-1/2 year hit in mid-May. DE10YT=RR
