A marketable security is basically any security which can be very quickly converted to cash. Things like Treasury bills and commercial paper are typical marketable security instruments. Liquidity is the key to understanding what they are. Normally the maturities will be for under one year.

All debt can be divided into two categories: the capital market and the money market. Any debt instrument with a maturity of less than 270 days is considered a money market instrument. This includes 3, 6 and 9 month T-Bills, commercial paper, repurchase agreements, bankers' acceptances and whiskey warehouse reciepts.
