It’s another day, and another swing for the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) so far this Thursday. After yesterday’s gains, the ASX 200 has slipped once more today and is currently down by a nasty 0.93% at the time of writing to around 7,050 points.

But rather than letting that get us down, let’s instead take a look at the shares that are currently sitting at the top of the ASX 200’s share volume charts, according to investing.com.

The 3 most traded ASX 200 shares by volume this Thursday

Westpac Banking Corp (ASX: WBC)

Once again, big four ASX 200 bank Westpac makes the list today at the number three position. So far this Thursday, a notable 10.45 million Westpac shares have changed hands. 

This appears to be the result of another big fall for the Westpac share price. The big four bank is currently down by a painful 3.66% to $21.18 at the time of writing after nearly slipping below $21 earlier in today’s trading.

Pilbara Minerals Ltd (ASX: PLS)

Pilbara Minerals is next up today. This ASX 200 lithium producer has had a sizeable 11.35 million shares trade on the open market so far. Like with Westpac, this seems to be a consequence of a big share price movement.

And like Westpac, it is a negative one. Pilbara shares have been hit hard today. This lithium stock is currently down a depressing 4.55% at $2.31 a share. It’s this big fall that has almost certainly resulted in this elevated trading volume.

Telstra Corporation Ltd (ASX: TLS)

From PLS to TLS! ASX 200 telco Telstra is our final and most traded share of the day as it currently goes. This Thursday’s session has seen a hefty 13.7 million Telstra shares change owners thus far. With Telstra, we have seen some significant volatility today. The telco took a big plunge after market open down to $3.85 a share. 

However, over the rest of the day, Telstra has recovered slightly, and at one point broke even. As it currently looks, Telstra is down by 0.26% at $3.88 a share. It’s this bouncing around that has probably resulted in Telstra topping today’s ASX 200 volume charts.
