No-load mutual funds are funds that do not charge a sales load when you buy or sell the funds.  A transaction fee is a trading fee that is charged by the brokerage firm when you buy or sell shares of a fund.  All mutual funds, including "no load" funds, incur transaction costs, expenses, and other fees that are passed through by the mutual fund to fund shareholders. Costs and other expenses apply to a continued investment in a mutual fund and are described in the fund's current prospectus.
