E*TRADE is the only major online broker to offer Vanguard mutual funds within its no-load, no-transaction-fee program
At their core, mutual funds should be lower-risk investments. With mutual funds, you may lose some or all of the money you invest because the securities held by a fund can go down in value. Indeed, an array of low-risk mutual funds spanning multiple asset classes are currently available to investors.
Investing in large-cap stocks may seem like a no-brainer, but as seen this year, there are still major risks unless you invest in the best mutual funds.
