From the sounds of it in Investor's Bidness Daily, Getting added to Russell is a BIG deal. According to IBD, the Nasdaq makes special extended trading arrangements in order to handle to volume surge, yet the NYSE says it can take the Russell factor in stride, and makes no allowances. On either exchange, IBD says "extreme trading".
