The yield on the 10-year U.S. Treasury note remained on track for a weekly gain Friday, reflecting improved risk-appetite among investors and signs that the Federal Reserve is confident about reaching its inflation target.

In recent trading, the yield on the 10-year note was 2.817%, according to Tradeweb, compared with 2.831% Thursday and 2.779% the previous Friday.

Yields, which rise when bond prices fall, have climbed this week as investors regained some of their taste for stocks following a rough patch highlighted by rising trade tensions and concerns about potential regulation of technology companies.

Though down on the day, the S&P 500 was recently up 1.9% for the week, led by the energy shares, which were up more than 5%.

Investors often buy Treasurys during times of political or economic uncertainty because they offer steady interest-payments with essentially no credit risk. Easing concerns, on the other hand, can hurt demand for bonds.

Bond investors are also focused on the Fed, which has sounded some hawkish notes recently.

Minutes from the central bank's March 20-21 meeting released Wednesday showed officials are increasingly confident that inflation will hit their 2% target over the coming year. Officials unanimously agreed that the economic outlook had strengthened in recent months.

Expectations that the Fed will tighten monetary policy at a steady clip have taken a heavy toll on short-term Treasurys in recent months.

At one point Friday, the yield on the two-year note hit 2.373%, its highest intraday level in more than nine years, according to Tradeweb. It was recently at 2.352%.

"We're clearly in a bear market here in the front end," said Ray Remy, head of fixed-income trading in New York at Daiwa Capital Markets America Inc.
