The problem with rising expectations is that it gets tougher to beat them.
Investors have broken the stock market's four-day rally Wednesday after U.S. data on the services industry and factory orders came in below forecasts.

Factory orders actually rose in April, but the report was a disappointment because investors anticipated a larger increase.

According to preliminary calculations, the Dow Jones industrial average is down 64.99, or 0.7%, at 8,675.88. The Standard & Poor's 500 index is down 12.97, or 1.4%, at 931.77. The Nasdaq composite index is down 10.88, or 0.6%, at 1,825.92.
