NEW YORK CITY—US stocks Wednesday closed lower after anemic inflation data and a disappointing earnings report from Macy’s suggested economic weakness.

At the closing bell, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 113.51 (0.73 percent) at 15,337.50.

The broad-based S&P 500 fell 8.80 (0.52 percent) to 1,685.36, while the tech-rich Nasdaq Composite Index gave up 15.17 (0.41 percent) at 3,669.27.
