  • What is not liquid is assets such as houses, boats, businesses. Things that would take a while to turn into cash.

  • Anything that can be easily converted into cash.

    Answer by beckcorc at 10:42 PM on Aug. 22, 2010

  • Accounts or securities that can be easily be converted to cash with little or no change in value (i.e. cash, bank accounts, money market mutual funds, CDs, US Treasury bills). Actively traded stocks, bonds, and mutual funds are liquid in the sense that they easily sell but their price is not guaranteed.

  • I just think of it as easily accessible money.
