Daily LiquidityMutual Funds
Trading limitations are a large downside to investing in mutual funds, and daily liquidity is one of the largest. Net Asset Value is only updated at the end of each day, when the investments in the fund have their finalized day prices. Since NAV is the basis for pricing and is only updated at end of the day, funds only honor buy and sell orders when prices are static. Mutual funds will allow you to trade daily after markets have closed. Equity shares allow you to liquidate your holdings in as little as 10 to 15 minutes if you have a partner to the trade.
Daily Liquidity means any Buy and sell orders made during the day will be placed in queues until the trading day has finished. After the close, they will be honored at that day’s closing Net Asset Value. If you are watching a market crash occur in real time, you will not be able to exit a fund directly impacted by the crash. If you are watching a market rally you won’t be able to add to your funds to capture gains. Your orders will take place at the end of the trading day after net asset value has been adjusted to the markets. You will always miss your market window for same day opportunities. You’ll have to hope the fund manager was competent enough to exit the crash or capitalize on the rally.
Daily Liquidity also means that if your order is after hours, on holidays, or on a weekend your order will be honored at the end of the next trading day. This regulation prevents investors from benefiting from current net asset values when information has been released on foreign exchanges or after hours that would clearly impact NAV. These restrictions are placed on funds by market regulators. Check your target market’s regulations to see if this trading restriction applies to you.
