Commentary

Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy delayed seeking a second rescue for Spain while pledging to continue bailing out its regions as Valencia requested more money to settle bills and cover debt…

Rajoy reiterated Spain won’t seek a second bailout until European leaders make aid conditions clear. Spain locked in as much as 100 billion euros in international aid for banks last month. The yield on Spain’s 10-year benchmark bond rose 13 basis points at 5:44 p.m. in Madrid, widening the gap with similar German maturities to 5.27 percentage points.  - Bloomberg
