The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) is giving investors a pleasant end to what has been a rather wild trading week. At the time of writing, the ASX 200 is currently up by 0.39% at around 6,554 points.
So let’s dive deeper into these market moves and have a look at the shares that are topping the ASX 200’s share volume charts right now, according to investing.com.
The 3 most traded ASX 200 shares by volume this Friday
Pilbara Minerals Ltd (ASX: PLS)
It’s all about those ASX 200 lithium stocks today, so let’s kick off with Pilbara Minerals. Pilbara has had a notable 20.61 million shares trade hands as it currently stands. There hasn’t been any new news out of Pilbara today.
However, this company has enjoyed a healthy share price rise this Friday. Pilbara shares have gained a pleasing 5.4% so far today and are trading at $2.16 a share. This seems to be the cause of the elevated volumes we are seeing.
Core Lithium Ltd (ASX: CXO)
Next up is Pilbara’s fellow ASX 200 lithium share Core Lithium. So far today, a sizeable 27.03 million Core Lithium shares have flown around the ASX boards. Again, it looks as though we have a big share price move to thank for this.
At the time of writing, an eye-catching 7.74% has been added to the Core Lithium share price today, pulling it up to 90 cents.
Lake Resources N.L. (ASX: LKE)
Our third, final and most traded ASX 200 share today is yet another lithium stock in Lake Resources. Like Core Lithium, Lake Resources only joined the ASX 200 index this week. But it has certainly had a baptism of fire, losing more than half of its value since Monday alone.
Saying that, Lake Resources shares are bouncing back with a vengeance today, and are up a pleasing 11.4% at 78 cents each so far. This decisive move upwards is almost certainly behind the whopping 79.15 million Lake Resource shares that have been bought and sold today.
