We investigate the correlation properties of transaction data from the New York Stock Exchange. The trading activity of each stock i displays a crossover from weaker to stronger correlations at time scales 60390 minutes. In both regimes, the Hurst exponent H depends logarithmically on the liquidity of the stock, measured by the mean traded value per minute. All multiscaling exponents display a similar liquidity dependence, which clearly indicates the lack of a universal form assumed by other studies. The origin of this behavior is both the long memory in the frequency and the size of consecutive transactions.
