Italy MILAN: Italy's one-year borrowing costs edged up at an auction on Wednesday as persistent uncertainty on a bailout request from Spain is reducing investor appetite for short-dated peripheral debt.   The Treasury sold 8 billion euros bills maturing on Oct. 14 2013 paying a yield of 1.94 percent, the highest since August.   It had paid 1.69 percent on a similar maturity at a mid-September sale when the European Central Bank's commitment to intervene in the bond market boosted investors' demand for Italian short-term paper.   On Wednesday the Treasury issued also 3 billion euros of three-month bill with a yield of 0.765 percent, slightly up from 0.7 percent at mid-September auction.

Bunds little changed, Spain still in focus  LONDON: Bund futures opened little changed on Wednesday with speculation about the timing of a potential Spanish bailout request dominating the market and worries about the corporate earnings season creeping in.   A Spanish bailout request is seen by many as key to keep the euro zone crisis from escalating as it would activate the European Central Bank's new bond-buying programme and potentially ease borrowing costs for peripheral states.   Safe-haven Bund futures were last 1 tick higher on ...
