EURO GOVT-Peipheral yields rise on Italian vote nerves
LONDON Feb 18 (Reuters) - Italian and Spanish government bond yields rose on Monday, with investors worried about a potential inconclusive result in Italian elections at the end of the week selling the euro zone's lower-rated paper.
Spanish bonds were also weakened by investors making room in their books ahead of a debt auction on Thursday.
Ten-year Italian yields were 7 basis points higher at 4.44 percent, while equivalent Spanish yields rose by a similar amount to 5.27 percent.
