We also investigate the role of liquidity and credit quality in this relationship. We find that volume and trading frequency have a positive and significant correlation to bond volatility, which is consistent with the information-based model. The results also suggest that liquidity plays an important role in their relationship, in which illiquidity causing stronger relationship between trading volume and price volatility.
