The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) is benefitting from another strong performance here on the ASX this Thursday. At the time of writing, the ASX 200 is up a pleasing 1% at just under 7,250 points.
But let’s dig a little deeper into these gains and have a look at the ASX 200 shares that are currently at the top of the market’s volume charts, according to investing.com.
Zip Co Ltd (ASX: Z1P)
The ASX’s largest buy now, pay later (BNPL) share Zip is our first share of the day today. Zip has had a notable 19.96 million of its shares swap hands as it currently stands. This has almost certainly been sparked by the gigantic leap upwards the company has enjoyed during today’s trading session.
The Zip share price is currently up an eye-catching 10.5% at $1.58 a share after going as high as $1.62 in earlier trading. No wonder this company is experiencing higher than normal trading volumes.
Nickel Mines Ltd (ASX: NIC)
Nickel Mines is our next ASX 200 share to check out today. This resources share has seen a hefty 22.91 million shares bought and sold at the time of writing. This doesn’t appear to have been caused by any news out of the company itself.
So we can probably assume it is the result of the movement of the Nickel Mines share price itself. At present, the company is up a robust 5.42% at $1.26 a share. This is the likely source of this elevated trading volume.
Telsra Corproation Ltd (ASX: TLS)
ASX 200 telco Telstra is last up this Thursday. At present, a sizeable 23.11 million Telstra shares have found their way around the ASX boards thus far. Again, there have been no major news or announcements out of the company, save for a share buyback notice that is probably helping this volume.
But Telstra shares have had a rather wild day. They were up at $4 at one point, but have cooled off in afternoon trading and are now going for $2.96 each, up 0.13% for the day. This bouncing around has likely also contributed to this volume of shares trading.
