Not sure I agree, but even so, worst case is I either find a non-ETF source of funds or go without for a few days until the mess is sorted out. I'm not at risk of finding out after the fact that I sold my holdings during a major and completely unjustified price dip.

That's true, but with a mutual fund, you don't know the price when you place the buy/sell order either. they are priced after market close.

Regardless, the daily moves are just noise especially if you look back a year later.
Exactly. IMHO it only makes a difference in a taxable account buying non-Vangaurd mutual funds.
