Bond yields held higher, but briefly wavered Wednesday after the U.S. central bank revealed discussions of global economic uncertainty during its last meeting.
The U.S. 10-year yield, which moves inversely to the bond's price, last traded at 1.8138 percent, down from 1.8312 percent just prior to the 2 p.m. ET release of the Federal Reserve's minutes. This is down from 2.3 percent at the start of the year, as safe-haven buying weighed on yields.
Meanwhile, the longer-dated 30-year yield was at 2.6828 percent, down from 2.6992 percent before the Fed minutes release.
Notes from the January Fed meeting revealed worries that tighter global financial conditions could hit the U.S. economy. The Fed considered changing their planned path of interest rate hikes in 2016, according to Reuters.
