Liquidity is a descriptive term for how quickly you would be able to turn an asset into cash. It also describes how active a particular trading market might be. For example if the New Zealand Stock Exchange was said to be very liquid that would mean that there were plenty of buyers and sellers interested in transacting in stocks.
