The 3 most traded ASX 200 shares by volume this Friday
South32 Ltd (ASX: S32)
Resources giant South32 is our first ASX 200 share to check out this Friday. So far today, a hefty 13.2 million of this diversified miner’s shares have been bought and sold on the markets. This doesn’t appear to be the result of anything out of the company itself.
Saying that, the South32 share price has enjoyed a strong move higher today. The company is currently up a pleasing 2.11 % at $5.08 a share. This is probably the source of these higher volumes.
Liontown Resources Limited (ASX: LTR)
ASX lithium share Liontown Resources is next up this Friday. This trading day has seen a sizeable 14.72 million Liontown shares trade hands as it currently stands. This has almost certainly been caused by the massive jump we have seen in this company’s shares today.
After a painful week of selling, Liontown shares have bounced back with a vengeance this Friday. The company is currently up a whopping 5.46% so far at $1.26 a share. Even so, Liontown still remains down more than 8% over the past five trading days.

Another ASX 200 lithium share in Pilbara rounds out our list today. So far, a notable 38.31 million Pilbara shares have bounced around the share market at this point of the trading day. Like Liontown, Pilbara shares have been steamrolling ahead after a painful week.
