Italian markets positive as voting closes

Voting has closed in Italy, and Sky has released instant polls (not exit polls) that show the centre-left clearly in the lead as we predicted earlier:

Bersani 34.5 per cent
Berlusconi 29 per cent
Grillo 19 per cent
Monti 9.5 per cent

While the outcome is not yet certain and will largely depend on voting in Lombardy, markets seem to think that the result is a done deal as the FTSE MIB moves upwards:
