Via Bloomberg, this chart is the spread between the German and Italian 10-year bonds. You can get live updates at this link.

If this moves much higher in the days ahead, it will be a sure sign that investors are already losing confidence in Europe's efforts to stem contagion.

A decline (a narrowing of the spread) would be huge.
ITALY 10 - GERMANY 10 SPREAD

hi all

yes you are right. when ppl are losing confidence in a country and start to sell the bonds issued by it, prices of treasuries will fall while the yields will spike!

when this happen, the investors who hold the assets will suffer paper loss until the maturity term returns to coupon rate payment. but those who speculate in relative bonds futures will be in rough tides!

cheers to all.
