How to find no-load ETFs

Cheapo investors and no-load ETFs just naturally go together.

In the mutual fund world, a no-load fund can be bought and sold with no commission fee paid to the adviser or firm selling it. The parallel for people using exchange-traded funds is an ETF bought through an online brokerage firm that waives trading commissions for ETFs. No-load mutual funds cost nothing to buy, and so do no-load ETFs.
