When "bond king" Bill Gross abruptly left Pimco last month, many fixed income investors -- usually a risk averse and restrained lot -- bolted in all directions.

That touched off a debate: Does passive ETF investing in bonds work as well as it does in stocks?
Mark Twain famously wrote that October is a particularly treacherous month to speculate in the stock market. "The others are July, January, September, April, November, May, March, June, December, August and February," he said.
"Bond king" Bill Gross has been a regular prognosticator of what will happen in markets. But the lesson he taught us on Friday about some of the risks inherent in closed end funds investing is instructive as well.

Burgeoning online investing site Covestor just might be forging a new distribution channel for fund firms -- and disrupt the supermarket platform wars.
In the same way we learned more than a decade ago that being a dot-com was not in itself a guarantee of success, today we're learning that not all Internet marketplaces gain traction.
