The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) is having another pleasant day so far on the ASX boards this Thursday. At the time of writing, the ASX 200 is up a healthy 0.34% at 7,464 points.

But let’s take a closer look at what the markets are up to today by checking out the ASX 200 shares currently topping the share market’s volume charts, according to

3 most traded ASX 200 shares by volume this Thursday

Liontown Resources Limited (ASX: LTR)

Our first ASX 200 share up today is miner Liontown. This lithium explorer has had a significant 16.08 million of its shares change hands thus far this Thursday. Liontown has seen a pleasing jump in its valuation today, having risen 3.37% at the time of writing to $1.68 a share after going as high as $1.75 (up more than 6%) earlier this morning. Additionally, we also got a notice out of the company this morning that its ongoing share purchase plan will be extended until 28 January. It’s this combination of events that has likely resulted in this elevated trading volume.

Telstra Corporaiton Ltd (ASX: TLS)

ASX 200 telco Telstra is our next share up today. So far, a hefty 16.71 million Telstra shares have found their way into a new pocket. The Telstra share price has done a bit of bouncing around thus far this Thursday. It’s currently sitting at $4.20 a share after rising as high as $4.32 and as low as $4.16 during today’s session. Further, we also got an update regarding Telstra’s upcoming half-year earnings results this morning. These two factors are probably the smoking gun behind so many shares shifting places thus far.

Pilbara Minerals Ltd (ASX: PLS)

Our final and most traded ASX 200 share this Thursday goes to Pilbara Minerals. This lithium producer has watched as a notable 21.21 million of its shares have been bought and sold so far today. With no news or announcements out of this ASX share today, we can probably assume this high trading volume is the result of the healthy share price appreciation Pilbara has enjoyed this Thursday. The company is presently up by 3.21% at $3.70 a share after hitting a new record high of $3.81 earlier today.
