Question about Fixed Income ETF behaviour

I just looked into the charts of 2 Fixed Income ETF's (mainly to compare YTD returns) and I noticed they looked very different.

$BND appears to look more like a conventional ETF or equity (where the price is constantly changing)

$MKB (on the TSX) looks "odd". Price changes don't appear to be constantly changing, but rather they spike at certain times. Is this because of the lack of volume, or is it to do with the holdings (the bonds only pay returns at certain times)?

Thanks for the insight
