The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) seems to be on track to end the trading week on a bit of a high after yesterday’s strong sell-off. The ASX 200 is presently up a healthy 1.05% at well over 7,100 points.

But let’s dive deeper into these market moves and take a look at the ASX 200 shares that are currently sitting at the top of the market’s share trading volume charts, according to investing.com.

The 3 most traded ASX 200 shares by volume this Friday

Telstra Corporation Ltd (ASX: TLS)

Telstra is our first ASX 200 share to take a glance at this Friday. So far today, the telco has seen a hefty 11.3 million of its shares change hands.

This may be a result of the movements of the Telstra share price itself, given there are no new news or announcements out of the company directly today, save for a share buyback notice.

The Telstra share price is currently flat at $3.93 a share. Saying that, we did see some movement earlier today, with the telco rising as high as $3.96 before falling back to the current level. it could be this market indecisiveness that is resulting in the elevated volumes we are seeing.

Santos Ltd (ASX: STO)

ASX 200 energy share Santos is next up this Friday. So far, we have seen a notable 13.06 million Santos shares trade on the markets.

Again, we haven’t had too much in the way of news out of Santos itself, save for another share buyback notice. But Santos shares have defied the market and have slumped 1.64% lower so far today to $8.075 a share.

It’s probably this share price fall that is responsible for this company’s presence here today.

Pilbara Minerals Ltd (ASX: PLS)

And our final and most traded ASX 200 share today goes to Pilbara Minerals.

This ASX lithium stock has had a sizeable 25.33 million shares swap owners during this Friday’s trading session thus far.

It‘s not too hard to work this one out though. Like most lithium stocks, the Pilbara share rice has rocketed today, rising by 4.21% so far to $2.845 a share. No wonder so many Pilbara shares have been traded.
