What's the difference between how a brokerage transaction works with traditional mutual funds vs an ETF?

An ETF trades like a stock, so you pay the standard trade fee to buy and sell. A mutual fund has its own policies and costs, some brokerage companies allow you to buy and sell for free, some have fees associated. If you are going to buy mutual funds, I would do it through the mutual fund company and bypass the broker.

Mutual funds are bought at fair asset value through the mutual fund company. ETFs are sold like regular stocks.
