The complete list of Schwab ETF fee reductions is here. Both the U.S. Broad Market (SCHB) and the U.S. Large-Cap (SCHX) ETFs - with fees reduced to 0.04% from 0.06% - are now the cheapest in the industry. Bond funds get a cut, too, including the Aggregate Bond ETF (SCHZ) to 0.05% from 0.10%. (previous)

    Schwab's efficiency in fund management really give them an edge over other ETF's by Vanguard, Fidelity (iShares), and SPDR.

    These funds have relatively low trade volume.

     

    It is not clear to me that it is efficiency, over taking a "loss" on the fee to market the funds and bump up volume.

    SCHB from Schwab trades a average of 191,000 per day. Liquid in ever way.

    Hard to see how this could be bad for investors - we win every time the big issuers engage in pricing wars with each other.
