Scott8147: "Sorry, I wasn't real clear on this. The total charges from Edward Jones on this runs about 1.50% per year on the balance invested and since it's in a retirement account, my accountant won't be hassled. So forgetting taxes and charges, the question is if daily re-balancing helps or hurts returns?'Do not know, but EJ should be able to offer evidence in support of tis proposition, but if you are paying 1.5% of AUM, WOW. The drag on return is immense. After ten years you will have given them 1/7 of your portfolio. After 30 years, you will have given EJ Nearly half (45%) of the value of your portfolio.What does EJ do that justifies those fees?I hope that intercst responds, because he has written far more about pricey fees than I can remember.Regards,
