About 4.7 million shares changed hands on Wednesday. Passive funds tracking the Nifty50 and the Sen­sex have to offload 150 million shares of JFS to realign their portfolios. This is exerting dow­n­ward selling pressure on the stock. Market players expect the selling pressure to continue until the selling by passive funds is fully abs­orbed. During a special price discovery session on July 20, JFS was valued at Rs 1.66 trillion. BS REPORTER
