Investors have taken scant comfort from the government's plans to revive the economy and the housing market.
Wall Street is ending essentially flat Wednesday after a steep sell-off a day earlier on worries about the global economy. Several modest rallies unraveled during the day as market indicators hovered around the lows they marked in November.
The Dow Jones industrial average is up 3 at 7,556. The blue chips are ending just above their November low.
The Standard & Poor's 500 index is down less than a point at 788. The Nasdaq composite index fell 3 to 1,468.
Declining stocks outnumbered advancers by about 5 to 2 on the New York Stock Exchange. Volume came to a light 1.43 billion shares.
