Liquidity Is Completely Relative

Liquidity is completely relative to the size of your portfolio.  I know that most people have this arbitrary number to say what is or what is  not “liquid”.  Some people say at a minimum a stock has to trade 1 million shares or 500k shares, but the fact is, a stock that trades 1 million shares per day might be liquid for many but maybe not for a 25 billion dollar portfolio manager.  And vice versa, a stock that trades 100k shares daily might be plenty liquid for a trader that only has a $30k dollar portfolio.  So forget the arbitrary numbers and define liquidity based on your portfolio size.  If you are not a mutual fund then don’t try to trade like one or use their or anyone else’s definition of “liquid”.
