Australia's leading investment platform provider CommSec has released data on the most traded ASX shares on its platform from last week.

Here's the data:

Zip Co Ltd (ASX: Z1P)

Yet again, this buy now pay later provider's shares were the most traded on the CommSec platform last week. Zip's shares accounted for 2% of trades on the platform, with just 40% of the volume coming from buyers. Unfortunately for the sellers, the Zip share price jumped almost 14% over the shortened week thanks to improving investor sentiment in the tech sector.

Betashares Nasdaq 100 ETF (ASX: NDQ)

This ETF was popular with investors again last week. The Betashares Nasdaq 100 ETF was attributable to 1.7% of trades on CommSec, with 71% coming from buyers. The technology-focused ETF stormed 4.7% higher during the week, hitting a record high in the process. A rotation back into growth shares gave the index, and therefore the ETF, a boost last week.

BetaShares Global Sustainability Leaders ETF (ASX: ETHI)

This ethical investment focused ETF was also in demand with investors again last week. Its unit were attributable to 1.4% of trades on CommSec, with a sizeable 88% of the volume from buyers. This buying pressure helped drive the ETF up 3.2% for the week.

A2 Milk Company Ltd (ASX: A2M)

This beaten down infant formula company's shares were back in favour with investors last week. Its shares accounted for 1.4% of trades on the platform, with 58% of the volume coming from buyers. These buyers will certainly have been pleased to see the a2 Milk share price jump 9.5% over the period.

iShares Core S&P/ASX 200 ETF (ASX: IOZ)

Finally, this popular ETF makes the top five again after accounting for 1.3% of trades on CommSec. And with buyers making up 89% of the volume, they will have been pleased to see the ETF carving out a gain of 0.8% for the period.
