The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) has slipped a little over today’s trading session, paring back some of yesterday’s gains. At the time of writing, the ASX 200 has lost 0.75% and is now back under 7,250 points.

But let’s dive deeper into these market moves and take a look at the ASX 200 shares that are presently topping the share market’s trading volume charts, according to investing.com.

The 3 most traded ASX 200 shares by volume this Tuesday

South32 Ltd (ASX: S32)

Diversified miner South32 is our first share of the day this Tuesday. So far today, a notable 10.44 million of this ASX 200 resources company’s shares have been bought and sold on the markets.

There hasn’t been any news or announcements out of South32 lately, save for some routine share buyback notices (which could be boosting volumes in themselves). But it’s probably the healthy share price rise we’ve seen out of South32 today that is responsible for the higher trading numbers. South32 is currently up 2.25% at $4.99 a share.

Beach Energy Ltd (ASX: BPT)

ASX 200 oil share Beach is next up today. So far, we’ve seen a hefty 11.36 million Beach shares swap owners. Again, this seems to be a consequence of the movements of the Beach share price itself.

The energy share is presently up a healthy 2.7% at $1.685 a share. This follows a big jump in oil prices overnight, which is currently being reflected across the energy sector.

Pilbara Minerals Ltd (ASX: PLS)

Pilbara Minerals is our third, final, and most traded ASX 200 share of ar this Tuesday. We’ve seen a sizeable 11.83 million of this lithium producer’s shares change hands as it currently stands. We could have some share price volatility to thank in this case.

Pilbara is currently down 0.67% at $2.96 a share today. However, the company was in the green in early afternoon trading. Perhaps it is this bouncing around that has led Pilbara to the top of the mountain today when it comes to share trading volumes.
