Yields on Italian bonds fall after electoral reform talks collapse

The Italian government's bonds saw the 10-year yield decline by 12.4 basis points to 2.158% as political parties failed to reach a deal on electoral reform and the ECB reiterated its commitment to quantitative easing, the Financial Times reported June 8. Yields decline when prices increase.

Main opposition parties Five Star Movement and the Northern League called for an immediate vote after talks over a German-style electoral system collapsed, Reuters reported. However, chances of an early election have faded as a deal was considered crucial for elections to be held in the autumn, rather than early 2018 as scheduled, the FT noted.

The proposal was sent back to a parliamentary committee to restart negotiations, but there was little hope of progress, Reuters reported.

The ECB reiterated its plan to continue monthly asset purchases of €60 billion until the end of December, or beyond, if necessary, adding that it "stands ready to increase the program in terms of size and/or duration." The central bank, however, dropped a reference to lower rates in its monetary policy decision June 8.
