Liquid market

a trading environment characterized by high volume, frequent transactions and narrow bid-ask spreads. At any given moment there is a surplus of ready and willing buyers and sellers, so a relatively large number of shares or contracts can trade in a single transaction without significantly affecting the security's market price. The result is low price volatility. Also termed Thick market or Deep market. Opposite of Illiquid market.
