(Sharecast News) - Wall Street trading got off to a mixed start early on Wednesday as Jerome Powell headed to Capitol Hill for a second straight day.

As of 1500 BST, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 0.04% at 39,277.16, while the S&P 500 advanced 0.26% to 5,591.33 and the Nasdaq Composite came out the gate 0.50% firmer at 18,520.81.

The Dow opened 14.81 points lower on Wednesday, extending losses recorded in the previous session.

Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell told the Senate Banking Committee on Tuesday that reducing policy restraint too late or too little could "unduly weaken" economic activity and employment.

He also told Congress that: "More good data would strengthen our confidence that inflation is moving sustainably toward 2%." Powell will continue his two-day testimony at 1500 BST, this time in front of the House Financial Services Committee.

On the macro front, mortgage applications dipped 0.2% in the first week of July, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association. Applications to refinance a mortgage fell 2% week-on-week, while applications to purchase a home rose 1% on the previous week.

No major corporate earnings were slated for release on Wednesday.
