Report: EU banking supervisors increase monitoring of Italian banks' liquidity

Banking supervisors in the European Union are monitoring Italian lenders' liquidity "more intensely than usual" following a spike in the country's government bond yields, Reuters reported, citing a senior EU source.

The increased monitoring comes as a result of market turmoil in recent days, the source said, with checks including customer deposits and the interbank market. However, there is reportedly no cause for alarm, according to the newswire.

The Banca D'Italia SpA and the European Central Bank did not comment on the matter.

In late September, Italy's populist coalition government agreed to a sharp increase in public spending, aiming for a budget deficit for 2019 at 2.4% of GDP. The 2.4% target is still well below the EU's 3% threshold, but the spending plan is at odds with Italy's promise to the bloc to reduce its deficit and rein in its debt.

Italian government bonds sold off Oct. 8 after the European Commission issued a warning to Italy's governing coalition over its budget plans for the next three years. The commission criticized Italy's plans for 2019 to increase the fiscal deficit target, saying it would risk violating European spending rules.
