Online Investment Advisors: MarketRiders, Betterment, and Plantly
I’m a big believer that online services will one day provide investment advice for many investors in a more cost-effective way, similar to TurboTax for tax services. Hopefully, this will allow more investors to get the independent guidance they need.

Andy Cohen, 47, uses exchange-traded fund portfolios recommended by MarketRiders Inc. to manage his retirement plan and children's college savings. He's charged about $10 a month. "I don't have enough money that I have a dedicated wealth manager," said Cohen, who lives in San Mateo, California, and is chief executive officer of Caring.com, which offers resources for children helping aging parents. "It got me a much more diversified portfolio than I could have ever done on my own."

MarketRiders Offering Commission-Free E.T.F. Portfolios
Want to build an inexpensive investment portfolio? Now you have access to supercheap building blocks, as well as easy instructions. As we have reported during the last nine months, Vanguard, Fidelity and Schwab have all announced that they would waive all trading fees on some or all of their exchange-traded funds...and now MarketRiders...has added a new feature: you can construct a portfolio based largely on those commission-free E.T.F.'s.

How Mutual Fund Managers Are Like Cigarette Makers
...we couldn't resist noting the nastiness of the rhetoric in a recent e-mail in which the founders of MarketRiders, an online service that helps investors build E.T.F. portfolios, compared actively managed mutual fund managers to tobacco companies.

The Future of Investing Advice
The web doesn't merely tear down costs. It's also begun to make investment strategy less of a secret sauce and instead a process anyone can track and follow. A new breed of sites aims to bring better trading ideas to the masses...Among the better offerings is MarketRiders, a subscription service that helps you build and execute a long-term portfolio for less than the cost of having a broker do it for you.

One Way to Avoid High Mutual Fund Fees
If the roller-coaster stock market isn't enough to turn your stomach, here's another reason for Pepto-Bismol: the high fees charged by many mutual funds. To get the specific numbers for what different funds charge, including ETFs, visit MarketRiders.com.

Those Get-Rich-Rebalancing Schemes
"How rebalancing added over 2% to the returns of a simple ETF portfolio." This was the headline on an essay last fall by Mitch Tuchman, the entrepreneur behind MarketRiders, an advisory service for people who like exchange-traded funds. Rebalancing means selling off some of the winners in your account and using the cash to buy more of the laggards.

Are Your Funds Keeping You From Becoming a Millionaire?
Mutual funds can drain upwards of $1 million from an investor's retirement savings over the course of several decades, according to a recent study. "Fees are recurring revenue [for fund companies]," says MarketRiders CEO Mitch Tuchman. "They're just siphoned out of accounts in ways that one cannot [easily] see. It's an insidious process."

Los Angeles Times
Fees can take a big bite out of retirement fund contributions
Making an annual contribution to a retirement plan? A recent study could give you pause. It says that more than half of the average person's IRA contribution is being eaten away in fees. "People need to understand that fees are lethal," said Mitch Tuchman, chief executive of a self-help portfolio management website called MarketRiders, which conducted the study of fees. "They are a hidden tax that people have no idea they're paying."

If you are ready to invest, you can find advice on what to buy
"...join a subscription service that makes investment recommendations to you based on the way you answer a questionnaire. MarketRiders, for instance, will suggest which ETFs make the most sense for you and will prompt you with what to buy and when."

With Warren as Your Wingman
Since Validea pays scant attention to asset correlation, its recommendations represent just a piece of a well-diversified portfolio. The site is best used in conjunction with a portfolio designer like MarketRiders (www.marketriders.com), focused on assembling the right balance of non-correlated assets. But building a portion of your portfolio the way Buffett or Graham might build it sure can't hurt.

These Web sites let you invest with the top pros -- or be one
Tuchman is hoping that MarketRiders does for investing what TurboTax did to simplify tax returns. "Anybody can do their taxes and not know anything about accounting," he said. "You can make the jump to do your own investing. If you can figure out when you need the money and how much risk you can take, we're going to give you a perfect portfolio."

And today, you can cobble together a portfolio of exchange-traded funds for less than a bag of second-hand mice... If it all seems too much, consider MarketRiders.com, which will suggest ETF portfolios for you and tell you when to rebalance. Cost: $10 a month.

Is an ETF the right investment for you? Look beyond the hype
Exchange traded funds, low-cost packages of securities that trade like stocks, have grown from virtually nothing to more than $1 trillion worldwide in 10 years... "We're now into the bastardization of ETFs by Wall Street," says Mitch Tuchman, CEO of MarketRiders.com, a website that recommends broad-based ETFs for average investors.

MarketRiders: Riding the Wave with DIY Investing
"The lesson many investors have learned is that their financial advisors can't beat the market and therefore are no more worthwhile than a simple computer program. Enter MarketRiders, a web-based investment advisory service that allows individual investors to type in their age, time horizon, investment experience and risk tolerance and sit back as a computer algorithm analyzes it and tells them what to buy and sell."

The Great Rebalancing Debate
"In a recent release, the company says its rebalancing strategy gave investors in one of its bond-heavy model portfolios the chance to more than double their returns-from 2.37 percent to 5.05 percent-during the turbulent 12-month stretch that wrapped up at the end of September"

Hedging Tips for ETF Traders
"'People who are active traders and are trying to use ETFs to hedge...might as well be playing at a roulette table. Usually they'll guess wrong and they'll get carried out,' says Mitch Tuchman, CEO and cofounder of MarketRiders.com."

Time to Tune Up the Portfolio
If I could create a rebalancing tool from scratch, however, it would look a lot like the MarketRiders, which helps you build and monitor a portfolio of exchange-traded funds ... It sends you an email when your portfolio has drifted 15 percent or more from its desired allocation, and the e-mail includes easy-to-understand instructions on how many shares you need to buy or sell. But what's really smart about this service is that it allows you to specify which online broker you use and will automatically substitute that firm's exchange-traded funds that trade free so that you can minimize trading costs.
