These days, many mutual funds from large asset managers such as etrade, Schwab or Vanguard offer no fee for mutual fund buy/sell.
So why would I pay for front-end or back-end fees to purchase/sell a mutual fund?
Yes, there are limited options on the available mutual funds to choose for the zero-transaction-fee mutual funds in those asset managing houses. But I wonder if there are funds that are really worth the 1-5% front-end or back-end fees ?? Or are the front-end/back-end fees a "bad legacy" of mutual fund transaction ?
