A small revolution is in the works that could make it exceedingly tempting for investors to buy no-load mutual funds through a discount broker. Charles Schwab & Co., the nation's largest discounter, says it will soon let investors buy and sell selected no-loads free of any transaction costs. A smaller rival, Jack White & Co. of San Diego, has already adopted a similar no-commission program on a few funds to stay competitive with Schwab.

When there's change taking place in the discount brokerage business, Jack White often is leading it. White founded the West Coast's first discount brokerage in 1973, and his Jack White & Co. later became the first such company to allow its customers to trade no-load mutual funds without commissions. Lately, White has turned his attention to cut-rate stock trading on the Internet and other computer-based innovations.

In what would be the third purchase of a major Southern California discount brokerage firm in less than a year, Canada's fifth-largest bank said Tuesday it would pay about $100 million for Jack White & Co., the San Diego discounter. Toronto Dominion Bank said Jack White will operate as a division of its discount brokerage arm, Waterhouse Investor Services Inc. The San Diego company's founder, Jack K.

The federal government had a relatively easy time selling $12.6 billion in new notes on Tuesday, suggesting that many investors are betting on a sharp decline in interest rates ahead. The Treasury's auction of three-year notes attracted $47 billion in bids, a very healthy level of activity, traders said. The average yield on the notes was 7.78%. The note sale was the first stage of a record three-day borrowing binge by Uncle Sam.

The return of the individual investor to the stock market has been a boon for a lot of stocks--and also for the brokers who trade them. Nobody knows that better than discount brokerages, which are riding high as many more do-it-yourself investors hunt for the cheapest way to make a trade. Los Angeles-based Pacific Brokerage Services, a 16-year-old discounter, saw its trading volume rocket from 257,595 transactions in 1989 to 431,384 last year.

In recent years, the distinction between load and no-load mutual funds has become increasingly blurred. If Jack White has his way, investors will find it even harder to tell one from the other. White, president of Jack White & Co., a San Diego-based discount brokerage, is working to create a resale market where fee-shy investors can purchase load mutual funds without paying the standard sales charge.

In a multimedia lab deep in the heart of Hoboken, N.J., computer scientist Patricia Morreale is inventing your next stock exchange. It is a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week market without borders, time or government: a place where trades are made at the best possible price, on the basis of the best possible knowledge, at the speed of light, without the hands of middlemen to slow them down.

Small investors didn't panic when the stock market took a sudden deep dive late Friday, but the plunge definitely put some on edge, brokers and mutual fund managers said. Although many investors said they'll remain calm and might even look for buying opportunities, others are eager to reduce their exposure to a market they see as due for a correction.
