This HumbleDollar guide explains mutual funds and ETFs. Which do you favor, and why? Do you choose differently depending on whether the investments are in a taxable brokerage account, a traditional pretax account such as an IRA or 401(k), or a Roth account such as a Roth IRA or Roth 401(k)?

Mine are all mutual funds, in all three types of accounts. Initially that was because ETFs weren’t available when I started investing. Now it’s because I don’t wish to deal with bid-ask spreads, even though ETFs tend to have slightly lower expense ratios than their mutual fund counterparts.
