Italy has sold €2.5 billion in bonds maturing in 2018 and another €2.5 billion in bonds maturing in 2023, the maximum amount offered. The sale comes after EU finance ministers reached an accord on bank bail-in. "Demand was well supported by those dealers who bet on some re-alignment in spreads," Newedge Group analyst Annalisa Piazza wrote in a note.
