In today’s podcast Anthony chats with Catherine Yoshimoto, Tim McCourt, and Matt PAX Kenah about the Russell Recon happening this week on June 24th. They explain what it is, what changes are anticipated to happen this year to the Russell 1000 & 2000, how it impacts the Futures Markets at CME Group, and how it impacts the traders that trade the E-mini Russell 2000 and Micro Russell 2000 Futures and Options.
What is Russell Recon? The Russell US Indexes are designed to reflect the ever-changing US equity market, and the annual reconstitution process is critical to maintaining accurate representation. During this highly-anticipated market event on June 24th, the breakpoints between large, mid and small cap are redefined to ensure market changes that have occurred in the preceding year are captured. Companies are also revaluated to determine where they lie along the investment styles spectrum.
