Well, it’s looking like the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) will have a positive end to the trading week after all. After three days of falls in a row, the ASX 200 has turned a corner so far this Friday, with the index currently up a healthy 0.27% at just over 7,300 points.

So let’s now dig a little deeper into these share market gains by taking stock of the ASX 200 shares that are currently topping the share market’s trading volume charts at present, according to

The 3 most traded ASX 200 shares by volume this Friday

Tabcorp Holdings Ltd (ASX: TAH)

Our first share this Friday is ASX 200 gaming company Tabcorp holdings. So far today, a hefty 30.5 million Tabcorp shares have made their way across the ASX boards. There’s been no official news or announcements out of Tabcorp today. But saying that, the Tabcorp share price has had a very positive day indeed.

The company has gained a healthy 2.87% so far, putting Tabcorp at $1 a share at present. Tabcorp has had a bouncy week ever since reporting its latest earnings on Tuesday, so no doubt investors will welcome this happy end to the week (touch wood).

Sayona Mining Ltd (ASX: SYA)

ASX 200 lithium stock Sayona is next up this Friday. So far this session, a sizeable 32.84 million Sayona shares have swum through the share market. There’s been no news out of Sayona today either.

But that hasn’t stopped this company’s shares from rocketing a pleasing 5.44% so far to just over 24 cents per share. Some big news from a fellow lithium stock (stay tuned) could be the reason why Sayona is spiking, and we are seeing so many shares flying around.

Pilbara Minerals Ltd (ASX: PLS)

Our third, final and most traded ASX 200 share today is another lithium stock in Pilbara Minerals. This Friday has had a notable 33.33 million Pilbara shares trade hands as it currently stands. Pilbara has revealed its latest earnings today, and (as we just flagged), they contained some big news.

The company has just announced its maiden dividend payment. Investors will be receiving Pilbara’s first-ever dividend of 11 cents per share on 24 March. The market is evidently very excited by this news, as well as the impressive metrics Pilbara reported this morning, and has sent the company’s shares up a meaty 3.24% so far today to $4.62 each.

All of these factors are probably why Pilbara is topping out ASX 200 volume charts this Friday.
