Take it slow & easy. Send him articles with an email note that says how happy you are that he is investing. If he is smart, he will see how no-load funds are a better deal. Maybe refer to a page in one of the articles to get him to read it.

I expect you only get one, or at most two chances to talk to him about this before he gets annoyed.

Don't risk creating a family rift over this -- his choices are his, no matter how bad they are.
