Hello Myles,
Exchange-traded funds are still growing to be an excellent form of investment. However, due to natural selection, some of these funds can be done away from the market. An ETF can liquidate maybe due to lack of interest in them, when they are not performing well or due to any other reason.
When ETF closes, the ETF contributor makes a statement on when the ETF will cease trading. The provider will also state when the funds will be terminated. 
The communication normally lasts for roughly 30 days. Investors, therefore, have sufficient time to look for an alternative form of investment and adjust their trading tactics.
Although the ETF will continue to trade normally from the time the announcement is made to when it will liquidate, its trading price and volume are likely to be affected.
This time is mostly given so that the investors can sell their current positions, gauge their risks, and find safeguard other trading chances until this time expires.
Once this period comes to an end, the ETF will take some time before it undergoes the liquidation procedure.
The investor whose funds are being liquidated will get an amount comparable to the value of the asset the moment the liquidation is taking place.
Before the actual implementation and the last bell, there is usually a lapse. Therefore, there could be some differences in price. Meaning that the prices of the bond in your fund may rise or fall during this time gap.
Be keen on your funds so that immediately such an announcement is made, you have enough time to alter your trading strategies and know which other investment options you will take.
