The 10-year bond pushed through the 7% mark on yields and the euro weakened further. This puts even greater pressure on Spain to implement austerity measures to get its debt problem under control.
 
The renewed rise in costs indicate that investors are increasingly wary. This introduces the prospect that Spain will run out of buyers for its debt. That would force Spain to look to the Eurozone countries for bailout funds. Eurozone finance leaders have yet to solidify a plan to manage bailout needs of other countries like Spain and, possibly, Italy.
