Update to Why We Use Mutual Funds

We published our “Why We Use Mutual Funds” post about three weeks ago, on March 27, to draw attention to the high, hidden costs of trading ETFs.   In today’s weekend Wall Street Journal, Jason Zweig laments the same point.  Titled “The Expensive Ingredient of Cheap ETFs,” his article explains how trading costs are “one of the worst destroyers of investment returns.”   He oberves, “These costs lurk in the normally tiny space between the market price of an ETF and the per-share value of the stocks, bonds and other assets it holds.”
