The Dow Jones Industrial Average tumbled 124.80 points to end at 13,074.75 Wednesday as investors weighed the implications of the Fed’s latest policy meeting and cast a wary eye toward Europe.

Techs were roughed up, too, as the Nasdaq shed 45.48 points to finish at 3,068.09 while the S&P 500 lopped off 14.42 points to close at 1,398.96.

In economic news, private employers added 209,000 jobs last month, according to the ADP National Employment Report—slightly better than the 200,000 new jobs most pundits had forecast.

Meanwhile, the Institute for Supply Management's non-manufacturing index rose at a slower-than-expected rate in March to 56.0, below the 57.0 consensus estimate.
