From the WSJ: Italian Senate Approves Budget Bill

Italy's senate approved the 2012 budget law Friday, paving the way for parliament to vote on the bill this weekend and for Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi to resign. ... The government has scheduled a final cabinet meeting Saturday at 1700 GMT, or as soon as the parliamentary vote is completed.

The speed of the cabinet meetings suggests Mr. Berlusconi is collaborating with the national plan, backed by the head of state, to try to install a new emergency government before markets open on Monday.
The Italian 10 year bond yield has declined to 6.59%.

The Spanish 10 year bond yield has increased to 5.89%. The Spanish 2 year yield is up to 4.74%.

The French 10 year bond yield has increased to 3.48%.
