U.S. stocks headed lower in the final hour of trading on Wednesday, threatening to extend a losing streak to four sessions as Wall Street closes the books on a choppy August. The Dow Jones Industrial Average /zigman2/quotes/210598065/realtime DJIA +0.0091% was down by 0.5% and the S&P 500 /zigman2/quotes/210599714/realtime SPX -0.16% was off by around 0.4%, while the Nasdaq Composite /zigman2/quotes/210598365/realtime COMP -0.59% lost 0.2%. The choppy trading on Wednesday came after the ADP figure came in below forecasts, showing the U.S. private sector employers added 132,000 jobs in August. The August employment report scheduled for release on Friday is expected to show the economy added 318,000 jobs, far fewer than the 528,000 new jobs that were created in July.
