Spain raises €6bn in auction but yields high reporters

It sold four, nine and 10 year bonds above the planned €2.5bn to €3.5bn but average yields remained above 5pc.

The sale was the last by a eurozone country ahead of the Christmas holidays.

But members of the eurozone-17 are bracing themselves for a slew of downgrades on the back of the sovereign debt crisis.
