The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) is off to a shaky start to the trading week so far this Monday. At the time of writing, the ASX 200 has slipped 0.32% today and is now back near 7,200 points.

But rather than letting that cloud our Monday. Let’s instead take a look at the ASX 200 shares that are presently at the top of the share market’s volume charts, according to investing.com.

The 3 most traded ASX 200 shares by volume this Monday

AMP Ltd (ASX: AMP)

ASX 200 financial services company AMP is our first company up today. So far this Monday, a notable 13.75 million AMP shares have changed hands. There’s been no major news or announcements out of AMP so far this Monday.

Saying that, the AMP share price is comprehensively bucking the market’s malaise so far today, and is currently up a healthy 1.96% at $1.14 a share. It’s this rise upwards that has probably sparked this elected volume we see.

Pilbara Minerals Ltd (ASX: PLS)

Pilbara Minerals is next up this Monday. As it currently sits, this ASX 200 lithium stock has had a sizeable 16.88 million of its shares find a new home. There have been no developments out of Pilbara today either. However, we have also seen a decisive share price movement for Pilbara today.

Unfortunately for investors, it’s gone the opposite way to AMP. Pilbara shares are currently at $2.43 each, having lost 0.82% so far today. Saying that, soon after market open, this company went as low as $2.35 a share (down more than 3%). Thus, it is probably this loss that has resulted in Pilbara’s presence here.

Liontown Resources Limited (ASX: LTR)

Another ASX 200 lithium stock in Liontown rounds out our list today. This Monday has had a hefty 17.28 million Liontown shares bought and sold at the time of writing. This volume comes after Liontown dropped some big news this morning.

As we covered earlier today, Liontown has signed a definitive offtake agreement with US electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) for the supply of lithium spodumene concentrate. Despite this development, Liontown shares have lost 2.76% of their value so far today at $1.24 a share.
