  • I'm hosting an exclusive online video event, "Profiting from Crisis in Europe". Investors are scratching their heads trying to figure out how to make money in the markets with Europe's debt crisis seemingly expanding everyday. Go to to find out more.

The Wall Street Journal recently reported some good news for ETF investors.

One of the largest brokerage services, TD Ameritrade, recently announced that it is cutting transaction costs to zero for over 100 different exchange traded funds (ETFs).

The news follows other announcements from brokerage services Charles Schwab, E-Trade, Fidelity, and Vanguard that they've also cut commissions on dozens of ETFs.

The difference between even small commission rates and no commission can be huge for individual investors who may see any substantial gains whittled away by even 1-2% fees.

According to the story from The Wall Street Journal, "Commissions make it costly to rebalance investments in ETFs or to use them for tax-loss harvesting, and they can hurt dollar cost averaging for younger investors."
