Why You Can’t Trade Now

As stocks keep falling, mutual fund investors looking to bail are out of luck. Unlike investors in individual stocks or exchange-traded funds — which can be bought and sold throughout the day at real-time prices — mutual fund trades don’t go through until after the market closes at 4 p.m. EST, with prices set at the day’s close. If, for example, you place an order to sell a mutual fund at noon, when the net asset value is $15, the trade won’t be executed until the end of the day at which point, the price could be higher or lower than when you pulled the trigger.

This means millions of antsy fundholders are stuck watching the markets rise and fall, and there’s nothing they can do about it. Some 51 million households own mutual funds, according to the Investment Company Institute, a mutual fund industry trade group. Mutual funds are also the investment of choice for 401(k) plans, which hold the lion’s share of Americans’ retirement assets.

For investors who are determined to sell (or buy), doing so as close to the market close as possible will offer a better idea of the final price. However, many investing pros say regular investors in mutual funds and 401(k)s shouldn’t be worried about day-to-day swings. “The stock market is for money you’re not using for 15 years,” says T. Rowe Price Financial adviser Stuart Ritter. Money you need within the next two years or so shouldn’t be in stocks to begin with, he says.

      Icon Yachts Launches Maidelle
      April 23, 2012 by Diane M. Byrne
      The third time’s the charm at Icon Yachts. Last week the Dutch shipyard launched its third megayacht based on its 63-meter platform, christened Maidelle. Specifically, the megayacht measures 62.5 meters, or 205 feet.
      Being delivered this summer, Maidelle bears styling from Redman Whiteley Dixon and naval architecture by Icon’s own Jouke van der Baan. Maidelle has a few notable features. There’s a two-deck master suite, in keeping with the owner’s desire for good-size private spaces. However, the owner also wanted spacious entertainment areas where he could join friends and family. That explains the direct access from the master suite to the bridge-deck saloon, which boasts panoramic views. The main saloon is certainly spacious, given its 56-foot (17-meter) length and Maidelle’s 37’4” (11.4-meter) beam.
      Maidelle’s interior design is by Cristiano Gatto Design, who previously collaborated with Icon on Midlandia. Photos have not been released, but renderings on Icon’s website show an emphasis on the warm, rich tones of a few woods. Ebony, mahogany, rosewood, and walnut canaletto are used for furnishings, paneling, and soles. They’re complemented by stonework adorning some soles and countertops. Also notable is the selection of citronwood (sometimes called sandarac) for the interior of closets. Citronwood is touted for its durability and, of course, its fragrance.
      Maidelle, further featuring an 11’8” (3.6-meter) draft, will meet Lloyds and MCA requirements.
      UPDATE, MAY 23, 2012: Maidelle underwent sea trials this week. Jen Wartena, Icon Yachts’ managing director, says the megayacht performed without any problems. Here are some photos taken during the trials:
