(NEW YORK) -- The markets couldn't make it four days in a row. Concerns about Europe's financial crisis stopped a three-day rally.
The Dow closed down 180 points despite climbing up 126 points earlier in the session. The Nasdaq gave up 55, and the S&P lost 24 points Wednesday.
Stocks fell as investors worried about Europe's ability to contain its debt crisis. While Finland has already voted to approve changes in the euro-zone bailout package, approval must come from all 17 members of the European Union to make changes. Germany will vote on the matter Thursday.
