[Chart] Ownership Share of US Equity Market by year: Institutional vs. Individual Investors

Very interesting chart. As can be seen households still dominate ownership of the US equity market (I assume the S&P500 or Wilshire 5000 is used here), albeit at a declining rate. I expect this trend to continue and for ETFs to grow even more, even if the SEC (hopefully) cracks down on some of these ridiculous 3x short Azerbaijan micro cap stocks.
