Markets were mixed on Wednesday.
Both the S&P 500 and STOXX Europe 600 fell 0.2 percent.
However, the Nikkei 225 jumped 1.1 percent earlier in the day.
Oil fell but bonds rose.
Annika Eiremo, a fund manager at Janus Capital Group Inc., thinks that “rates have room to go higher” and that it is “still early stages of a very uncertain time period in terms of what policy will be”.
