I was shocked when I discovered the turn over rate (TOR) for my VANGUARD indexed bond fund called BND. It has a TOR of 61% of port per year.VT, VTI, and VEU which are Vanguard's broadest-based indexed stock ETFs.Their TORs are 5%, 5%, and 6% respectively.The difference is that stocks don't mature. They go on. Bonds mature and need to be replaced and must be traded.So...if my supposedly CHEAP and INDEXED bond ETF has a 61% TOR, what does a bond hyper-trader like Junkie's TOR look like? Personally, I'm afraid to even look at them.It's hard to argue with SIMPLE arithmetic. The more you trade, the more you lose.
