  1. Of course it depends on broker.
    Most at Fidelity buy and hold, while most at Interactive Brokers actively trade.

    At this point, most of the passive money is in mutual funds. These investors don't actively trade, yet, the fund managers do. So, it depends on how you would characterize mutual fund investors.
