NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. stocks ended lower for a second straight session on Wednesday as worries increased the Federal Reserve could bump up rates as soon as June and the dollar strength further dampened the outlook for U.S. corporate earnings.

The Dow Jones industrial average .DJI fell 26.98 points, or 0.15 percent, to 17,635.96, the S&P 500 .SPX lost 3.85 points, or 0.19 percent, to 2,040.31 and the Nasdaq Composite .IXIC dropped 9.85 points, or 0.2 percent, to 4,849.94.
