Commission free stuff from Schwab, for the same reason as you. Not worth paying a $5 fee on a $200 investment!

I mean, I’m not actively trading in my roth. I put in the maximum of each year and buy shares of some mutual funds that either amplify successful trends or diversify the portfolio. and then i let it sit and accrue value. $5 per trade is kinda meaningless when yr putting a couple thousand into a fund at a time.

VTSMX - 100%. Index funds are the best.

I use a target date index fund with low fee. I have some ETFs that I do a split on to see if I can beat the target date index fund. So far, it's negligible.

Same as you- fidelity ETF’s. I buy two of the $2,500 minimum funds each year and put the extra $500 (to contribute the max of $5,500) into whichever fund has historically performed better.

@Moss what funds?

I have a few of the sector ETFs- materials, IT, telecommunications. Then I have two mid cap mutual funds and one of the new factor ETF’s. Only started a few years ago
