The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) didn’t have a great day today, finishing down 0.40% to 7,280 points.
Let’s check out the most traded ASX 200 shares on the market today.
The 3 most traded ASX 200 shares today
Nuix Ltd (ASX: NXL)
Coming in at third place is embattled ASX 200 tech share Nuix, with just over 8 million shares traded today.
This is probably the result of the Nuix share price performance so far.
Nuix shares closed at $2.33, up a hefty 5.43% today. This is a rebound from yesterday when the company lost more than 13% and hit yet another all-time low of $1.26.
The news that prompted this slide seemed to be allegations that one of Nuix’s former executives engaged in insider trading offences. Evidently, at least some investors thought yesterday’s low presented a buying opportunity today.
Boral Limited (ASX: BLD)
Construction materials company, Boral is another ASX 200 share that was popular on the ASX today.
Almost 13.5 million shares changed owners today. This is despite the Boral share price rising just 0.14% to $7.36.
However, the company did hit a new 52-week high of $7.40 in intraday trading yesterday.
Telstra Corporation Ltd (ASX: TLS)
The king of the ASX 200 today was once again ASX telco, Telstra with 48.7 million shares traded by the closing bell.
There is no major news out of the company today. However, Telstra was the talk of the town yesterday when it announced that it would be selling half of its mobile towers business for $2.8 billion.
The Telstra share price responded enthusiastically, shooting up 4.6% yesterday to a new 52-week high of $3.76.
Today, Telstra finished flat at $3.76, after hitting another new 52-week high of $3.79 earlier in the afternoon.
