Good index fund list?

Postby pszalapski » Mon May 07, 2007 9:30 am

Does anyone have a list of good no-load index funds ranked by increasing expense ratio, starting with the lowest ER? I'd like to diversify into more than just DSPIX (maybe an international index fund and a small-cap/mid-cap fund). I already have this Dreyfus fund, but the other Dreyfus index funds don't look so good due to a expense ratio around .5%. If I can find a few index funds in the same family, maybe I'll switch over to it. Thanks.

At the 10K per fund mark, Fidelity index funds are the lowest -- 0.10%.

At the 100K total account balance, Vanguard offers admiral shares -- 0.09%.

E-Trade has 3 funds with 0.09%-0.15% but must be held in an E-Trade account. Fees are being waived at the moment, no guarantee the fees will remain at this level.

The absolute cheapest is to buy ETF version of Vanguard funds with no-commission brokers. Vanguard ETFs go as low as 0.07%.

Vanguard has the widest selection of index funds by a wide margin.
