TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The stock declines came as 10-year Treasury yields TMUBMUSD10Y, -1.14%  hit 3% and remain at their highest level since January 2014, a sign of confidence in the economy.

Justin Tang, head of Asian research at United First Partners, said that while many investors have priced in higher 10-year bond yields, “the real concern is how quickly rates are going to go up.” The 10-year Treasury yield started 2018 at 2.41%.

Fu said the 10-year Treasury yield moving beyond 3%, which hasn’t happened since 2011, will “definitely trigger appetite into risk-free assets.”

Oil prices in Asia were roughly flat by midday after declines during U.S. trading Tuesday. Bitcoin BTCUSD, -2.21%  has continued to rally, moving within $300 of $10,000, according to CoinDesk, a level the cryptocurrency hasn’t reached since early March.
