The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 69 points, or 0.2% to finish the session near 35,031, and the S&P 500 slipped six points, or 0.1% to end near 4,514.

Meanwhile, the Nasdaq Composite lost around 88 points, or 0.6%, to finish near 15,287.

On Tuesday, the Dow lost over 260 points, contributing to declines logged after last week's jobs report for August that came up short on expectations.

For the month, the S&P 500 is off 0.4%, the Dow is off about 1% while the Nasdaq is trading near flat.
