The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) is recovering from the nasty falls we saw earlier in the trading week so far this Wednesday. At the time of writing, the ASX 200 has gained a robust 0.77%, which lifts the Index back above 7,060 points.

Let’s hope this goodwill holds. But time now to dig a little deeper into these pleasing gains today by checking out the shares that are topping the ASX 200’s share trading volume charts right now, according to 

The 3 most traded ASX 200 shares by volume this Wednesday

Telstra Group Ltd (ASX: TLS)

Today we’re starting with ASX 200 telco Telstra Group. So far today, a decent 22.09 million Telstra shares have been called up for trading.

With no fresh news or announcements out of this ASX blue chip, we have to assume this volume is the result of the bouncing around in the Telstra share price itself that has happened this session.

At present, Telstra shares are up a healthy 0.37% at $4.065 each. But Telstra climbed as high as $4.10 this morning.

Pilbara Minerals Ltd (ASX: PLS)

From TLS to PLS! Next up is the ASX 200 lithium leader Pilbara Minerals. This session has seen a sizeable 25.11 million Pilbara shares bought and sold so far. There hasn’t been any news out of Pilbara today either. But Pilbara shares have been a lot more volatile than Telstra’s.

This morning, we watched this lithium share spike to a price of $3.86 (up more than 4%). But investors have since cooled their jets, and Pilbara is now back down to $3.655 a share, up by just 0.14% for the day. This price swing probably explains this high number of shares flying around.

Syaona Mining Ltd (ASX: SYA)

Third and finally today, let’s discuss another ASX 200 lithium stock in Sayona Mining. So far this Wednesday, a notable 28.53 million Sayona shares have changed hands as it currently stands. Again, with no news out of the company itself, let’s turn to the Sayona share price itself for an explanation here. Sayona shares have also had a volatile session this Wednesday.

The company started off strong this morning and rose close to 5%. However, investors got cold feet soon afterwards and sent Sayona shares into red territory around lunchtime.

But in another change of heart, the company is back to the green this afternoon and is currently up by 1.16% at 21.75 cents a share. No wonder so many Sayona shares have been darting across the markets.
