The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) ended the week with a disappointing drop on Friday. Pa close the market today, the ASX 200 lost 0.87% of its value, falling to 6,785.7 points.
But rather than dwell on this sad end to the trading week, let’s instead check out the stocks that topped the ASX 200 share trading volume charts, according to investing.com.
The 3 most traded ASX 200 stocks by volume this Friday
Pilbara Minerals Ltd (ASX: please)
There was a punch this Friday ASX 200 Lithium Stock Pilbara minerals. A significant 24.90 million Pilbara shares traded on the ASX today.
There was no news from the company itself during this session. However, we still saw a big fall in the Pilbara share price. The lithium producer ended at $4.87 per share, down 4.70% on the day. This autumn probably saw so many Pilbara stocks find a new home.
Core Lithium Ltd (ASX: CXO)
Next up is another lithium company in Core Lithium. 23.80 million shares of Core Lithium traded hands in today’s session. This company also had no news today.
In saying that, we had big announcement yesterday, indicating that the Core Lithium supply deal with Tesla is off, is worth considering. Coupled with Core Lithium’s further 2.90% drop today, this is likely the reason for these increased volumes we’ve seen.
BrainChip Holdings Ltd (ASX: BRN)
Our third, final and most traded ASX 200 stock a technology company BrainChip. A whopping 43.79 million shares of BrainChip changed hands before the market closed today. This was almost certainly helped by the quarterly update the company released this morning, which was not well received.
How my colleague Fool was covering at the time it showed that the company had $118,000 in revenue for the quarter under review. Investors were unimpressed, and the company fell 21.18% to 67 cents a share. It’s no wonder that so many stocks have gone wild.
