The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) has continued its weak form from last week so far this Monday. After a rough end to the trading week last Friday, the ASX 200 has again seen losses during the session, thanks in most part to jitters over the collapse of the SVB Financial Group in the US.

At the time of writing, the ASX 200 Index is down by another 0.36% at just under 7,120 points.

But let’s not dwell too long on all of that. Time now to take a look at the stocks 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 Monday

Liontown Resources Ltd (ASX: LTR)

First up this Monday is ASX 200 lithium share Liontown Resources. So far today, a notable 14.34 million Liontown shares have been exchanged on the markets. This doesn’t seem to be a consequence of any news or announcements out of Liontown itself, seeing as there are none today.

So this high volume looks to be a consequence of the movements of the Liontown share price this Monday. Liontown has had a fairly wild day of trading. The company is currently down by a meaty 2.57% at $1.515 a share, but fell as low as $1.48 a share this morning.

Pilbara Minerals Ltd (ASX: PLS)

Next up is another ASX 200 lithium stock in Pilbara Minerals. This Monday has seen a sizeable 27.64 million Pilbara shares change owners so far. This looks like another result of the market’s volatility today. At present, Pilbara is down by 2.51% at $3.88 a share.

But again, we saw the Pilbara share price fall by far more this morning, with the company going as low as $3.755 a share. This bouncing around looks like it is to blame for the elevated trading volumes on display here.

Sayona Mining Ltd (ASX: SYA)

Yet another ASX 200 lithium share is our final and most traded stock at this point of Monday’s session. In Sayona’s case, investors have seen a hefty 36.05 million Sayona shares bought and sold as it currently stands. And yet again, it seems this volume comes down to share price volatility.

Sayona has had a rollercoaster of a day. The lithium company is currently down 1.3% at 22.7 cents a share but fell more than 5% this morning before recovering to the levels we see now. No wonder so many shares have been zipping around the markets.
