Exchange-traded funds (ETFs)

You can now trade more ETFs without paying a commission.

Exchange-traded funds have long been a cheaper alternative to traditional mutual funds.

Now they're even sweeter: Several brokerages have expanded the number of ETFs customers can buy or sell commission-free. Fidelity now offers 65 commission-less iShares ETFs, up from 30 last year (saving you $7.95 a trade).

And Schwab has upped its commission-free offerings from 15 to 105 (saving you $8.95 a trade). So while buying a portfolio of seven ETFs and rebalancing once used to cost $125, you'll now pay nothing.
