A simple and easy way to find out how much your stock market investment pays is to use our stock market ETF calculator.
This tool uses our existing index fund price and fee calculator to calculate your stock portfolio’s investment costs, and then shows you how much each of your stock ETFs would be worth if you bought them all at once at the current price.
In addition to showing you how you would be paying, the calculator also calculates the annual percentage return for your stock funds from the index fund you selected.
If you’ve never used an ETF calculator before, we recommend you do so now, as we will be covering some of the best ETF calculators in the market.
Before we start, we would like to note that our stock index fund fee calculator only includes the cost of the index funds you currently hold in your brokerage account, and it does not include brokerage fees or commissions.
You will need to find the fees you will need for your investment in your financial planner’s index fund list to determine how much you would pay for your fund if you just bought it all in one go.
In other words, it’s a simple, cost-effective way to calculate the cost per investment you would make.
Step 1: Fill out our simple stock index fee calculatorStep 2: Select the type of stock ETF you are interested in.
If you are a new investor, you may be interested in investing in one of the more popular stock index funds, which are called a “classic” or “classic low-fee” index fund.
A classic index fund is an index fund that does not require you to hold any other index fund at all.
You can invest in classic index funds in either an individual or in a basket of index funds.
For more information on the difference between classic and index funds and how to choose one, see our article The Classic Index Fund and What is a Classic Index?
The traditional low-cost index fund was created by index fund guru Edward Jones in 1970 and is now considered the gold standard of investment management.
It is designed to outperform the S&P 500 Index fund in a variety of industries.
Because it is designed for the long-term, it typically pays out less in dividends than the index it replaces.
In contrast, a classic index is designed just for the short-term and has no dividend yield.
The index you select can be a single fund, a basket or a combination of index and classic fund.
If a classic fund is chosen, you will pay no brokerage fees and no commission.
It also is less expensive than a traditional index.
If the index you choose is not an index, you’ll pay a commission to an index provider.
For example, a single index fund could cost you $50 to $100 per year, depending on the index provider, but you’d pay a premium of about $3 to $5 to a traditional fund.
If your current investment strategy includes buying a portfolio of index fund index funds with a range of price levels and the average price of each fund is less than $1,000 per fund, then you can choose a classic low-priced index fund as your stock index.
This is because index funds are usually more expensive than the S &Ps index funds at their respective price levels.
The classic low fee index fund pays a higher commission than a classic indexed index fund, because the index is used to determine the cost to invest in the index.
For a typical stock portfolio, you would need to invest $25,000 for a typical index fund and $100,000 in a classic Index fund.
For example, if you have a $25 million investment portfolio, the index will cost you approximately $1.5 million.
Your index fund would need $1 million to purchase the index, while your classic index would need only $400,000.
Your traditional index fund can be purchased at any price, and you can buy the index for just $1 per share.
In comparison, the classic index should be purchased for $50,000 or less.
This means that you can save about $2.5 to $3,500 in commissions per year by choosing a classic stock index instead of a classic traditional index stock fund.
However, you should note that this same strategy would work well for a $50 million portfolio with a $250 million investment, as well.
Step 3: Enter the index value of your selected index fund into the calculatorStep 4: Click the “Calculate” buttonTo help you find the best index fund for your needs, we have included a stock index index fund calculator in this article.
If your index fund has a range that is not shown in the calculator, the default range is the range that your index is currently trading at.
This range indicates the price range at which the index should trade.
In our example, the range for the index would be
