The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) is finally treating investors to a day in the green so far this Tuesday. At the time of writing, the ASX 200 is bouncing back from the recent falls we’ve seen and is currently up a healthy 1.34% and back over 6,500 points.

So let’s dive deeper into these positive market moves and check out the ASX 200 shares currently at the top of the market’s trading volume charts, according to investing.com.

The 3 most traded ASX 200 shares by volume this Tuesday

Whitehaven Coal Ltd (ASX: WHC)

ASX 200 coal miner Whitehaven is our first share to check out today. This resources company has had a hefty 22.95 million of its shares trade on the markets thus far. There have been no major announcements out of Whitehaven, save for a share buyback notice.

However, the Whitehaven share price has had a cracker today. It’s currently up 3.85% at $4.715, but rose as high as $4.96 earlier this morning. It’s probably this healthy bump in valuation that is behind the elevated trading volume today.

Core Lithium Ltd (ASX: CXO)

Core Lithium is our next ASX 200 company up today. This ASX lithium stock is enjoying its second day on the ASX 200 Index today after it made its promotion official yesterday.

Maybe this is why 23.23 million of the company’s shares have found their way around the ASX boards so far today. Or it could be the nasty 5.6% fall Core Lithium has endured today, despite the market’s good mood. It’s probably a combination that is resulting in the high trading volumes we are presently seeing.

Lake Resources N.L. (ASX: LKE)

Another ASX 200 newcomer is our final and most traded ASX 200 share of the day today. Lake Resources also joined the ASX’s flagship index yesterday. Unfortunately, it has been something of a baptism by fire.

This lithium hopeful has crashed by another painful 25.7% so far today and is now at $1.007 a share. This comes after the shock exit of its managing director Steve Promnitz. Lake Resources is now down by almost 34% over the past five trading days. No wonder 46.98 million shares have been bought and sold so far today.
