Fed officials note risks of moving too quickly to ease stance of monetary policy, minutes show.

US stocks closed mixed Wednesday after the release of the Federal Reserve's minutes from its last meeting.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 48 points, or 0.13%, to finish the day at 38,612. The S&P 500 rose six points, or 0.13%, to 4,981.

Fed officials see risks of cutting interest rates "too quickly," according to minutes released earlier of the central bank's last meeting that concluded on Jan. 31.

"Most participants noted the risks of moving too quickly to ease the stance of policy and emphasized the importance of carefully assessing incoming data in judging whether inflation is moving down sustainably to 2 percent," said the minutes.
