The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) looks to be giving investors a pre-Easter treat during this last day of trading before the long weekend. At the time of writing, the ASX 200 is up by another 0.54% and is back over 7,500 points.

But let’s delve deeper into the ASX 200 and check out the shares currently topping the market’s share volume charts, according to investing.com.

The 3 most traded ASX 200 shares by volume this Thursday

Uniti Group Ltd (ASX: UWL)

Our first ASX 200 share up today is the telco Uniti. Uniti has had a sizeable 22.61 million of its shares bought and sold on the markets thus far this Thursday. This is probably a result of the big announcement the company made this morning. Uniti has revealed that it has entered into a deal with the Morrison/Brookfield consortium that will see Uniti acquired in full at a price of $5 a share. 

As one might expect, the Uniti share price has raced toward that level today and is currently up a healthy 3.11% at $4.97 right now. This news and share price bump is the likely reason why we are seeing so many shares trading today.

AVZ Minerals Ltd (ASX: AVZ)

Lithium stock AVZ Minerals is next up this Thursday. We have seen a notable 27.83 million AVZ shares swap hands as it currently stands today. This ASX 200 lithium share has put out no major news or announcements today. However, the AVZ share price is currently up a robust 1.74% at $1.17. This follows the big announcement yesterday that AVZ’s flagship mine in the Democratic Republic of the Congo has received a final approval. 

Paladin Energy Ltd (ASX: PDN)

Paladin Energy is our final and most traded share of the day at present. We have seen a whopping 32.65 million Paladin shares find a new home on the markets so far today. Again, there has been no news or announcements out of this ASX 200 uranium share.

In saying that, we have seen a big share pice move with this company. The Paladin share price is currently up a pleasing 6.04% at 97 cents a share. This comes amid recent gains in the uranium price, as well as some love from some ASX brokers for Paladin shares themselves. It’s probably a combination of these factors that is leading Paladin to top our most traded shares list today.
