Can I purchase thses two funds through my TD Ameritrade account or do I need to use a broker (financial advisor)
Mine are in a Roth IRA with Vanguard as Custodian. I do not have any direct-purchased because of this.
Why not buy directly from the funds? I have set up automatic investing with YACKX, dollar cost averaging over the years and have done very well. There is no fee beyond the usual management fees, and the company is very good about the paperwork, etc.
Yes, but if you have multiple funds you get buried in paperwork and other correspondence. Nice to have all funds in a brokerage account where you get one statement showing all activity.
Yes you can purchase it through TD Ameritrade. These are on the no transaction fee list.
Found it...thank you
Don't know about TD, I bought it through Scottrade with NO fees or commisions whatsoever!
