Hello Cedric,

Exchange-traded funds are seen as more liquid than other mutual funds hence making them a better investment option. They are primarily diversified, and you can trade them in the financial market at any time, these are some of the reasons why they are seen as more liquid.
There are primary and secondary components that make ETF highly liquid. The primary factors include the ETF elements and the number of securities in an ETF that are traded.
According to the composition of ETF, you can trade ETFs using various instruments such as futures and equities. For example, if you sell ETFs as an Equity, you need to know that certain copy indices. Other ETF will deal in a particular market. 
The trading volume is affected by the market price, which, in return, influences the liquidity of an ETF. The securities whose risks are low have a high trading volume; hence their liquidity is also high. ETF that are more actively traded have higher liquidity. 
The secondary elements include the specific ETF trading volume and the environment in which the ETF is invested.
The trading volume barely affects the liquidity of the ETF. ETF that deal with stocks are most times traded, and their liquidity compared to others may be slightly different.
If investors desire to trade in a certain market, the ETF in that market will highly trade, therefore becoming highly liquid.
The liquidity in ETF differ, and the securities it has to affect it, which in turn affects the trading volume.
