    Welcome to the russell 2000

    Sprint, so your asking where the new contributions into the index funds go to? That's a good point. I know very little about how that works. Probably way off base, but maybe it balances out with money exiting as well as entering. The fluctuations up and down are a result of that? Maybe Caution or someone else can help out with it ?

    • Found this on E-How. Haven't checked other sources yet.

      The Securities and Exchange Commission states that index funds are cheaper because of the smaller amount of active management. Once the securities are purchased for an index fund, the manager doesn't have to do as much in the way of buying, selling and maintenance. The reduced levels of management mean cheaper fees and a lower amount of taxable income for investors. Because of the overall increase in profit, index funds stand to make more money in the long run.

      Pay particular attention to " the manager doesn't have to do as much in the way of BUYING, SELLING, and MAINTENANCE" hence Caution's explanation
