U.S. stocks slipped for the sixth straight day on Wednesday after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke’s assessment of the economy kept investors worried about the recovery.

The three major U.S. stock indexes reversed gains late in Tuesday’s session after the Fed chairman acknowledged the recovery has slowed, but offered no hint the U.S. central bank is considering any more stimulus to accelerate growth.

The market was expecting a hint from the Fed about the implementation of a third round of asset-buying, according to Paul Zemsky, head of asset allocation at ING in New York. The Fed’s $600 billion second round of stimulus, expected to end this month, has been a catalyst for the stock market’s advance.

But Zemsky said the Fed will probably allow some time for the economy to show it can stand on its own before committing

to more stimulus. In the meantime, absent positive economic data surprises, the market weakness could remain.

“I think we’re going to right around the 200-day moving average at 1,250 on the S&P 500,” Zemsky said. “That’s the level we traded in March during the Japan crisis and seems a good place to see if the market supports.”
