The upcoming special index rebalance is aimed at reducing the dominance of technology megacaps in the market. As a result, passive investors are expected to use the last window available to align their portfolios with the benchmark before the changes go into effect on Monday.
One of the main effects of this rebalance is the increased presence of smaller members in the market. Analysts estimate that two-way transactions related to this rebalance could reach $60 billion. This estimation comes from Min Moon, a strategist at JPMorgan Chase & Co.
