The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) had a rather flat day today. The index finished up 0.15% at 7,292 points, well under its new all-time high of 7,315 points that we saw this morning.
Let’s take a look at which ASX 200 shares were among the most heavily traded today.
3 ASX 200 shares on the move today
Origin Energy Ltd (ASX: ORG)
The Origin share price climbed higher today, up 1.89% to $4.86 per share at the close of trade. The energy retailer and generator is now up a hefty 21.5% since the start of June. This may be a result of some positive broker activity recently, which we covered here.
A total of 9.60 million Origin shares changed hands today, making it one of the most traded ASX shares of the day.
Scentre Group (ASX: SCG)
Scentre is another ASX 200 share that experienced heavy trading today. Scentre shares ended the day up a healthy 2.51% at $2.86 per share. Scentre is also up 5% in the past week.
Again, there isn’t much in the way of official news or announcements out of Scentre today. But, like Origin, this real estate investment trust (REIT) has also recently benefitted from some broker love. That might have helped today’s rise, which saw 16.45 million shares swapping hands.
Imugene Limited (ASX: IMU)
ASX healthcare company Imugene was one of the most heavily traded ASX 200 shares on the market today, with a massive 68.53 million shares moving around. That is possibly the result of Imugene’s sizeable 14.87% fall today to 31.5 cents a share.
There doesn’t seem to be an obvious catalyst for this hefty move today. But it is worth noting the company did run up 370% between 10 March and 26 May this year. It was also up more than 80% between 10 May and 26 May. With no other news, could it be simply some profit-taking going on here?
