Well, it’s turning out to be a rather awful end to the trading week this Friday. At the time of writing, the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) has shed a horrible 2.03%, putting the index down to just around 6,565 points.

But instead of letting that ruin our weekends, let’s instead take a look at the ASX shares that are currently at the peak of the ASX 200’s share trading volume charts, according to

The 3 most traded ASX 200 shares by volume this Friday

Cleanaway Waste Management Ltd (ASX: CWY)

A relatively rare appearance from waste disposal company Cleanway marks our first highly-traded ASX 200 share today. So far this Friday, a hefty 11.2 million Cleanaway shares have been recycled on the markets. We’ve seen no news out of the company so far during this session.

So perhaps this huge volume can be put down to the movements of the Cleanaway share price itself. Cleanaway shares have taken a hit today, but are still outperforming the broader markets with their loss of 1.64% at $2.70 a share.

Telstra Corporation Ltd (ASX: TLS)

Next up this Friday is ASX 200 telco Telstra. A sizeable 15.27 million Telstra shares have been called in so far during today’s session. Telstra hasn’t been immune to the woes of the share market today either.

The telco has presently lost a sobering 1.95% at $3.76 per share. Perhaps the woes revealed today in the broader telco space are also influencing Telstra’s share trading volumes as well.

Pilbara Minerals Ltd (ASX: PLS)

Our third, final and most traded ASX 200 share today is none other than lithium producer Pilbara Minerals. This Friday has seen a notable 26.23 million Pilbara shares bought and sold on the share market thus far. This appears to be the result of some potent volatility in the Pilbara share price itself.

The company initially opened well in the green this morning, rising as high as $5.03 a share. But the losses of the markets appear to have quickly sapped investors’ confidence. Pilbara shares are now down a nasty 3.04% at just $4.79 a share.
