(ANSA) – MILAN, AUGUST 16 – First session after the mid-August break with a slight rise for Piazza Affari, which moved in line with Europe: the Ftse Mib index closed up 0.12% at 22.997 points, the FTSE All share up by 0.10% to 25,162.
In the Old Continent, Madrid was doing well, finishing up by one percentage point, with Frankfurt up by 0.6%, London by 0.4% and Paris by 0.3%. Amsterdam sluggish, down by a marginal 0.1%.
Strong Moscow, up by more than two percentage points, also thanks to the gas rush, which closed up above 225 euros.
Strong tension on government bonds, especially Italians: the differential between Italian BTPs and German ten-year Bunds concluded at 215 points against 207 last Friday, with the BTP yield at 3.12%.
