Stock index-rebalance day: more trades

Russell rebalance day is the most hectic day of the year.

I don’t have an explanation for the increased activity. I can only guess.

  • I guess Many ETF’s would need to buy/sell underlying stocks stay aligned.
  • I guess many mutual funds would also buy/sell since they are benchmarked on those indices.
