Trading Expense Calculator

The Trading Expense Calculator will help you compare the potential costs of using ETFs and no-transaction-fee (NTF) mutual funds.

The calculator is designed for active investors to determine whether ETFs or mutual funds' costs are more suitable. (Some mutual funds are sold with a front-end or back-end load. This tool doesn't account for front-end or back-end load. This calculator is appropriate for comparison of ETFs and no-load funds.) In addition to the expense ratio, this calculator incorporates other factors that may affect costs:

  1. Number of round trips or individual trades per year or average holding period: Since you have to pay a commission/transaction cost each time you buy or sell an ETF (and the same may apply to mutual funds), transaction costs and trading frequency should be considered.
  2. Cost per transaction or brokerage commission
  3. Bid / ask spread: Because ETFs are traded on the exchange, they can be affected by bid and ask prices. The wider the spread between those two prices, the more costly it is to trade.

Shares are not deposits or obligations of any bank, are not guaranteed by any bank, are not insured by the FDIC or any other agency, and involve investment risks, including the possible loss of the principal amount invested.

**1 Exchange privileges are between equivalent share class structures. Certain share classes may impose sales charges on new purchases or for early redemptions. Please read a prospectus for more information.

The funds may not be suitable for all investors. Certain funds may be affected by risks that include those associated with sector concentration, international investing, investing in small and/or medium size companies, and/or the Funds' possible use of investment techniques and strategies such as leverage, derivatives and short sales of securities and alternative or nontraditional asset classes and strategies such as absolute return, long/short, commodities, currencies and managed futures. Please see the funds' prospectus for more information. Shares of the funds are not deposits of, or guaranteed or endorsed by, any financial institution; are not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the Federal Reserve Board, or any other agency; and involve risk, including the possible loss of the principal amount invested. Diversification neither assures a profit nor eliminates the risk of experiencing investment losses. Inverse and leveraged funds are not suitable for all investors. •These funds should be utilized only by investors who (a) understand the risks associated with the use of leverage, (b) understand the consequences of seeking daily leveraged investment results, (c) understand the risk of shorting, and (d) intend to actively monitor and manage their investments. •The more a fund invests in leveraged instruments, the more the leverage will magnify any gains or losses on those investments. •Inverse funds involve certain risks, which include increased volatility due to the funds' possible use of short sales of securities and derivatives, such as options and futures. •The funds' use of derivatives, such as futures, options and swap agreements, may expose the funds' shareholders to additional risks that they would not be subject to if they invested directly in the securities underlying those derivatives. •Short-selling involves increased risks and costs. You risk paying more for a security than you received from its sale. •Leveraged and inverse funds seek to provide investment results that match the performance of a specific benchmark, before fees and expenses, on a daily basis. Because the funds seek to track the performance of their benchmark on a daily basis, mathematical compounding, especially with respect to those funds that use leverage as part of their investment strategy, may prevent a fund from correlating with the monthly, quarterly, annual or other period performance of its benchmark. Due to the compounding of daily returns, leveraged and inverse funds' returns over periods other than one day will likely differ in amount and possibly direction from the benchmark return for the same period. For those funds that consistently apply leverage, the value of the fund's shares will tend to increase or decrease more than the value of any increase or decrease in its benchmark index. The Funds rebalance their portfolios on a daily basis, increasing exposure in response to that day's gains or reducing exposure in response to that day's losses. Daily rebalancing will impair a fund's performance if the benchmark experiences volatility. Investors should monitor their leveraged and inverse Funds' holdings consistent with their strategies, as frequently as daily. •For more on these and other risks, please read the prospectus.
