The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) is having a decent, if not inspiring, day of trading this Tuesday. At market close, the ASX 200 is a fair 0.32% to 7,563 points after making a fresh new all-time high of 7,576.3 points earlier this morning.

But let’s now take a deeper look into the ASX 200 shares that are topping the charts today in terms of trading volumes.

3 ASX 200 shares flying around the markets today

Telstra Corporation Ltd (ASX: TLS)

Our first ASX 200 share is the telco giant Telstra. Today, a hefty 13.1 million telstra shares traded on the share market.

This is probably a result of the telco hitting a new 52-week high this morning. Telstra shares rose all the way up to $3.88 a share earlier today, before subsequently cooling off a little. Telstra finished the day at $3.86, up a still-robust 0.92% for the day.

Novonix Ltd (ASX: NVX)

ASX 200 graphite and battery company Novonix is next up on this list. This materials share has had a dramatic resumption of trading today after a recent share price halt. After outlining a capital raising program and an investment by the US oil giant Phillips 66 (NYSE: PSX), the Novinix share price resumed trading today.

And it was something to behold. At market close, Novonix shares finished at $3.43 a share, up 13.58%. This is probably the reason why a substantial 14.7 million NVX shares traded today.

Pilbara Minerals Ltd (ASX: PLS)

And last but certainly not least we have ASX 200 lithium producer Pilbara Minerals. Pilbara tops the ASX 200 charts today in terms of trading volume – and by a mile too. A staggering 33.7 million Pilbara shares were traded today.

Once again, this seems to be the result of a dramatic jump in this company’s valuation today. At market close, Pilbara finished up a whopping 10.95% higher to $2.33 a share. This seems to be in response to some love from broker JPMorgan, which has upgraded its outlook on the entire ASX lithium sector.
