This morning Australia’s leading investment platform provider CommSec released data on the most traded ASX shares on its platform from last week.

While a number of familiar faces have made it into the top five again this week, one surprising new entry was the most traded share on the platform.

Here’s the data:

Douugh Ltd (ASX: DOU)

This neobank was surprisingly the most traded ASX share on the CommSec platform last week. It accounted for 4.9% of trades, with 63% coming from buyers. Douugh is aiming to use an artificial intelligence approach to disrupt the business model of banking. Its shares rose a whopping 228% last week. Things haven’t been so good this week, with the Douugh share price losing a third of its value week to date.

Zip Co Ltd (ASX: Z1P) 

Zip shares were popular with investors again last week and accounted for 4.4% of trades on the CommSec platform. And although 62% of these trades came from buyers, it wasn’t enough to stop the buy now pay later provider’s shares from falling 7.2% over the five days.

Flight Centre Travel Group Ltd (ASX: FLT)

CommSec customers were also busy buying the travel agent’s shares last week. Flight Centre accounted for 2% of trades on the platform, with a massive 77% coming from buyers. Unfortunately, concerns over rising COVID-19 cases globally sparked fears of delays in a travel market recovery and led to a broker downgrade by Credit Suisse. This put pressure on the Flight Centre share price, sending it 9% lower for the week.

Betashares Nasdaq 100 ETF (ASX: NDQ)

This exchange traded fund (ETF) was popular with investors again last week. It accounted for approximately 1.5% of trades on the CommSec platform, with 78% of trades coming from buyers. Investors appear to be loading up on the tech-heavy ETF ahead of earnings season in the United States.

Afterpay Ltd (ASX: APT)

Finally, Afterpay makes the top five once again. The payments company’s shares were involved in 1.5% of trades on the CommSec platform. However, just 34% of these came from buyers. Those sellers may be regretting this one after the Afterpay share price rocketed through the $100 level and to a new record high this morning following a deal with Westpac Banking Corp (ASX: WBC).
