It ended up being a very pleasing end to the week for ASX investors this Friday. As of market close, the All Ordinaries Index (ASX: XAO) has closed up a healthy 0.59% at 7,250.3 points. But many ASX tech shares fared even better.

So let’s check out three that had an absolutely cracking end to the trading week on the ASX today.

3 ASX tech shares that had a cracking day on the ASX today

Novonix Ltd (ASX: NVX)

Our first ASX tech share to check out is battery tech company Novonix. Novonix shares had a corker rising a pleasing 13.65% to $3.08 a share over today’s session.

This staggering move was despite a complete absence of any news out of the company, as my Fool colleague Bronwyn covered earlier. This latest move means that the Novnix share price is now up more than 32% over the past month alone.

Saying that, the company remains down a painful 70% or so over 2022 thus far. Its current 52-week high of $12.47 still looks like a long way off too.

Weebit Nano Ltd (ASX: WBT)

Next up is ASX tech share Weebit Nano. Weebit Nano shares enjoyed more than a (apologies) wee bit of a gain today. The semiconductor company rose an impressive 9.06% over today’s session to finish up at $3.01 a share.

There’s been no news out of this company since its investor presentation that was released on Monday. This was initially poorly received. But since Tuesday, Weebit Nano shares have risen by more than 12%, so perhaps investors have changed their minds.

Life360 Inc (ASX: 360)

Finally, we have location-sharing software company Life360. As you might guess, Life360 shares also had a very successful trading day this Friday.

The company ended up closing at $4.96 a share, up a healthy 5.76%. This one is a little more of a mystery. The company hasn’t put out much in the way of news at all in recent weeks. Yet it has risen close to 15% since Wednesday this week.

Perhaps the bullish broker note my Fool colleague James went through late last month could have played a role. Broker Bell Potter rated the company as a “buy”, with a share price target of $7.50. That might have tempted a few buyers this week.
