How the Dow Jones industrial average fared Wed.

The U.S. stock market finished slightly lower on Wednesday, adding to its losses so far this year.

A survey on hiring did little to ease uncertainty about the health of the economy.

The Dow Jones industrial average dipped 5.01 points, 0.03 percent, to 15,440.23.

The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 3.56 points, or 0.2 percent, to close at 1,751.64.

The Nasdaq composite dropped 19.97 points, or 0.5 percent, to 4,011.55.

For the week so far:

The Dow is down 258.62 points, or 1.7 percent.

The S&P 500 is down 30.95 points, or 1.7 percent.
