  • Italian government bonds rallied and outperformed their euro zone peers on Friday after Italy’s highest court rejected a proposed change in electoral law that would probably have benefited the far-right League.
  • Ten-year Italian government bond yields fell around 7 basis points to 1.37% in one of their best sessions this month, after a sell-off raised yields 5 basis points on Thursday.
  • Most other euro zone bond yields were flat on the day.
