How the Dow Jones industrial average did Wednesday

The Associated Press

The stock market stumbled Wednesday as investors waited for the government's jobs report later this week and the beginning of quarterly earnings releases from corporate America.

Traders put aside a positive report that showed private employers created more jobs in December than economists had expected. The market had a muted reaction to minutes from the Federal Reserve's mid-December policy meeting.

On Tuesday:

The Dow Jones industrial average lost 68.20 points, or 0.4 percent, to 16,462.74.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index fell 0.39 points, or 0.02 percent, to 1,837.49.

The Nasdaq composite rose 12.43 points, or 0.3 percent, to 4,165.61.

For the week:

The Dow is down 7.25 points, or 0.04 percent.

The S&P 500 is up 6.12 points, or 0.3 percent.

The Nasdaq is up 33.71 points, or 0.8 percent.

For the year:

The Dow is down 113.92 points, or 0.7 percent.

The S&P 500 is down 10.87 points, or 0.6 percent.
