    8 months after it initially announced it was changing the benchmark indexes on 22 key ETFs, 2 more Vanguard funds officially shift from MSCI to FTSE and CRSP indexes. The Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF (VTI) will now track the CRSP U.S. Total Market Index while the Vanguard Total International Stock ETF (VXUS) will now track the FTSE Global All Cap ex-U.S. Index. According to a recent statement, Vanguard expects that the licensing agreements with FTSE and CRSP will lead to lower costs over time for all funds involved in the benchmark changes.

    Ron Rowland offers additional highlights on the recently expanded lineup of commission-free ETFs over at Fidelity including the following caveat: Funds not held for 30 days by retail investors or 60 days by RIAs using Fidelity as a custodian will be subject to a $7.95 per-trade commission. Some RIAs have complained that the longer holding period directed at them is unfair. Rowland spells out the full list of affected ETFs here.

    Fidelity boosts its commission-free ETF total to 31, adding five new iShares funds to the free-trade program: ACWX, DVY, HYG, IDV and IYR. It's still got a ways to catch up to competitors like TDAmeritrade, which has 100 commission-free ETFs, but it's been popular for Fidelity - attracting investor cash at three times the rate of funds outside the program.
