The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) has hardly kicked off the trading week in style this Monday. At the time of writing, the ASX 200 is currently down by 0.45% at 7,363 points.
But rather than dwelling on that, let’s instead check out the ASX 200 shares that are currently topping the ASX trading volume charts so far today, according to investing.com.
3 most active ASX 200 shares by volume this Monday
AMP Ltd (ASX: AMP)
ASX 200 wealth manager and banking share AMP is our first cab off the rank today. AMP has, so far this Monday, seen a hefty 11.8 million shares change hands. This could be a consequence of the news this morning that AMP will be retaining control of its Wholesale Office Fund. Perhaps as a result, the AMP share price is currently up a healthy 2.82% to $1.17 a share. It’s this combination that is probably behind so many AMP shares trading today.
Nickel Mines Ltd (ASX: NIC)
ASX 200 nickel company Nickel Mines is our next share to take a look at today. A sizeable 11.91 million NIC shares have found new owners so far this Monday. Nickel Mines is actually the best performing ASX 200 share on the share market so far today. Its shares are up 8.82% so far at $1.30 a share.
Investors appear to have gotten a boost of confidence after this company released a memorandum of understanding this morning, outlining its next phase of growth alongside the Chinese company Shanghai Decent. It’s this news that has likely resulted in the elevated trading volume we see today.
Pilbara Minerals Ltd (ASX: PLS)
And our final and most traded ASX 200 share of today so far goes to ASX lithium producer Pilbara Minerals. A whopping 20.03 million of this company’s shares have been bought and sold so far today. With no news out of Pilbara today, we can probably put this high volume down to the hefty share price gains Pilbara has seen so far. This company is up a pleasing 5.3% to $2.48 a share this Monday.
