The stock market ended lower Wednesday for the third day in a row after an early morning rally faded away. The Dow Jones industrial average had its first three-day loss of the year and its second close below 15,000 in the past month.

With no positive catalysts to drive the market higher, traders anticipated that Federal Reserve policymakers may indicate after next week's meeting when they plan to dial back the central bank's economic stimulus program.

The Dow Jones industrial average fell 126.79 points, or 0.8 percent, to close at 14,995.23.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index fell 13.61 points, or 0.8 percent, to 1,612.52.

The Nasdaq composite index fell 36.52 points, or 1.1 percent, to 3,400.43.

For the week:

The Dow is down 252.89 points, or 1.7 percent.

The S&P 500 is down 30.86 points, or 1.9 percent.

The Nasdaq is down 68.79 points, or 2 percent.

For the year:

The Dow is up 1,891.09 points, or 14.4 percent.

The S&P 500 is up 186.33 points, or 13.1 percent.

The Nasdaq is up 380.92 points, or 12.6 percent.
