The post Here are the 3 heaviest trading ASX 200 shares on Monday appeared first on The Motley Fool Australia. –
The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) had a rather positive day on Monday, closing the session at 7,425.2 points, up 0.25% for the day.
But let’s get away from those uninspiring numbers and, instead, check out which ASX 200 shares have been topping the charts today in terms of raw trading volume.
The 3 heaviest trading ASX 200 shares this Monday
Alumina Ltd (ASX: AWC)
ASX 200 resources share Alumina is our first ASX share up today. This aluminium producer has seen a healthy 16.72 million of its shares trade today. This appears to be a result of what has happened with the Alumina share price today, seeing as there were no major news or announcements out of the company.
Alumina shares finished up a robust 1.83% to $2.22 a share. But the company took a big dive around midday, going as low as $2.16 a share before recovering. It’s probably a result of this volatility that we saw so many Alumina shares bouncing around today,
Sydney Airport Holdings Pty Ltd (ASX: SYD)
Sydney Airport is probably the ASX star of the show today. The company set chins a wagging this morning when it announced a third player has lobbed a bid to acquire the Airport. As you might expect, this caused the Sydney Airport share price to spike today. It closed 4.63% higher at $8.37. Almost certainly as a result, we saw a hefty 25.5 million SYD shares swap hands.
Pilbara Minerals Ltd (ASX: PLS)
Not even a takeover offer for Sydney Airport can keep ASX 200 lithium producer Pilbara Minerals away from the top of the pile today. Pilbara saw a whopping 26.46 million of its own shares bought and sold. This follows a massive 7.32% surge in the Pilbara share price at close on Monday. The company finished the session at $2.20 a share. This big jump is likely what has placed Pilbara at the top of today’s list.
