The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) is currently having a very bumpy trading session over this Thursday thus far. At the time of writing, the ASX 200 is in the green, but only just, up just 0.11% at a tad over 6,760 points. This comes after the ASX 200 has jumped between gains and losses for most of the day.

But rather than trying to figure all of that out, let’s instead delve deeper into these market moves and check out the shares presently at the peak of the ASX 200’s share trading volume charts, according to investing.com.

The 3 most traded ASX 200 shares by volume this Thursday

Newcrest Mining Ltd (ASX: NCM)

A rare appearance from ASX 200 gold miner Newcrest marks our first ASX share to check out this Thursday. So far today, a notable 13.77 million Newcrest shares have changed hands as it currently stands. This seems to be a response to the operational update the company released to investors this morning.

As my Fool colleague Bronwyn dove into earlier, Newcrest reported that it had met its gold production guidance for FY2022 at a lower cost than expected. Investors have responded positively to this news, with the Newcrest share price currently up by 0.8% at $19.19 a share.

Pilbara Minerals Ltd (ASX: PLS)

ASX 200 lithium stock Pilbara is next up today. So far, a sizeable 18.37 million Pilbara shares have swapped owners on the ASX boards today.

Unlike with Newcrest, we’ve had no news out from Pilbara. So this volume seems to be a result of the machinations of the Pilbara share price itself. This lithium producer has enjoyed a healthy 242% rise so far to $2.54 a share this Thursday.

Lake Resources N.L. (ASX: LKE)

Another ASX 200 lithium stock in Lake Resources rounds out our list today. As it currently stands, a hefty 27.84 million Lake Resources shares have been bought and sold on the share market at this point.

We also haven’t seen any fresh news or announcements out of Lake itself. So again, we have to assume this volume is the result of the Lake Resources share price. This makes sense, seeing as Lake has rocketed a pleasing 7.86% today to 76 cents a share, despite no news out.
