The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) has started the trading week with a spring in its step so far this Monday. At the time of writing, the ASX 200 has risen by a pleasing 1.7% to back over 6,600 points.

So let’s delve a little deeper into these share market moves and check out the shares currently topping the ASX 200’s volume charts today, according to investing.com.

The 3 most traded ASX 200 shares by volume this Monday

Evolution Mining Ltd (ASX: EVN)

Evolution Mining is back this week as our first ASX 200 share to check out. So far today, a sizeable 8.53 million Evolution shares have changed hands as it currently stands. There’s been no new news out of this ASX 200 gold miner today.

However, the Evolution share price has bounced back somewhat during this trading session. It is currently at $2.45 a share, up almost 3% this Monday, which probably explains the trading volumes we are seeing. That’s not nearly enough to erase the dreary June performance of Evolution though.

South32 Ltd (ASX: S32)

ASX 200 diversified mining company South32 is next up today. So far this Monday, a notable 8.62 million South32 shares have been bought and sold on the share market. We’ve seen some significant volatility with this company during today’s session.

South32 initially spiked in value this morning, rising as high as $3.95 a share. However, investors seem to have gotten cold feet as the day has worn on, with the miner now down by 0.26% at $3.86. It’s this bouncing around that we can probably thank for the elevated volumes we are seeing.

Pilbara Minerals Ltd (ASX: PLS)

Pilbara Minerals is our third and final share to check out today. This ASX 200 lithium stock has had 8.87 million of its shares trade over the day thus far. Again, we can’t point anything out of the company itself. So it is probably the movements of the Pilbara share price that are to blame here.

Like South32, we have seen some bouncing around in the Pilbara share price today. The lithium producer initially flew as high as $2.31 a share after market open this morning. But Pilbara has now fallen back to earth and is currently flat at $2.24 a share.
