***People who trade on short to intermediate term fluctuations tend to prefer CEF's and ETF's over other mutual funds because they can be traded quickly.***

The attraction to CEF's has been enhanced by low commision online discount brokers. This is especially noticable in Closed End Bond Funds when can be traded for as little as $5 in and $5 out.
