U.S. government debt prices climbed on Thursday as investors digested U.S. data as well as the minutes from the last Federal Reserve meeting.
The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note fell to 1.765 percent, while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond was also lower, at 2.628 percent. Two-year note yields were slightly lower at 0.726 percent.
The Fed minutes were released on Wednesday and signaled that its members see risks increasing. Most U.S. central bank officials were still looking to raise rates and even discussed whether a rate hike could be appropriate in January.
After a discussion, they said tighter financial conditions could be the equivalent of further increases.
