Let's talk about NTF Mutual Funds...

What do you like, not like, etc.

What do you like to use to read up on them, etc.

Any cost that you incur in buying or owning a mutual fund decreases your overall return.

I would alway suggest to everyone who invests to buy funds that have no loads, no transaction fees, and low operating expenses.

So it's kind of a strange question to ask if reducing unnecessary fees is a good thing. Yes, keeping your money is a good thing.

I believe in indexing.

In fact, I am a purist.

I am 100% indexed in Vanguard's family of index funds. You won't find a better mutual fund company than Vanguard.

Here's my questions for you. I like Vanguard as well and I like Fidelity. The company that I use for my Roth is Scottrade. Apparently those two aren't "on" their "list" -- does that mean I can't buy them with that account?

(Yeah, I know I could call Scottrade... but you seem to know your stuff.)
