Fidelity Spartan 500 Index is excellent. I don't use Scottrade so I don't know if thats NTF there.

I'm pretty new to TMF but it seems that suggesting a Fidelity fund is blasphemous based on some of the posts I've seen but VFINX and FSMKX are practically identical. I wouldn't bother with the Dreyfuss fund, the expense ratio is high. The .25% ziggy mentioned is just the management fee, there's also a .25% 12b-1 fee on top of that. Not to mention that despite tracking the same index PEOPX lags VFINX and FSMKX in performance.
