It’s again looking like a disappointing day for the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) this Tuesday.

After going backwards yesterday, the ASX 200 looks to be on track to record another loss for this session. At the time of writing, the index has lost 0.12% of its value, dropping down to 7,138 points.

But let’s not dwell on all that. Instead, it’s time to check out the shares currently topping the ASX 200’s share trading volume charts, according to investing.com.

The 3 most traded ASX 200 shares by volume this Tuesday

Telstra Group Ltd (ASX: TLS)

First up today is the ASX 200 telco Telstra. So far this Tuesday, a sizeable 26 million Telstra shares have been dialled in to a new owner. We haven’t heard any fresh news out of the company today. So perhaps we can put this high volume down to the volatility we have seen with Telstra shares this Tuesday.

The telco is presently bucking the market with a gain of 0.52% to $3.88 a share. But Telstra has had several stints in both positive and negative territory this session, fluctuating between $3.84 and $3.89 all day. It’s probably this volatility that has caused the high trading volumes we see.

Pilbara Minerals Ltd (ASX: PLS)

From TLS to PLS! ASX 200 lithium share Pilbara Minerals is next up for this session. This Tuesday has seen a hefty 52 million Pilbara shares find a new ASX home. We haven’t heard anything out of Pilbara itself either.

But, as my Fool colleague Bernd went through this afternoon, ASX lithium shares of all shapes and sizes are getting a drubbing today. In Pilbara’s case, the company is down by a nasty 9.83% to $4.77. This follows the company’s 11% gain yesterday. With all of this bouncing around, it’s no wonder so many shares are taking flight.

Core Lithium Ltd (ASX: CXO)

Our final ASX 200 share today is another ASX lithium stock in Core Lithium. This Tuesday’s session has had a whopping 78.2 million Core Lithium shares change hands as it currently stands. We seem to have a similar situation to Pilbara Minerals with this company.

Despite no news out from Core itself, the Core Lithium share price has been walloped by investors today. The company is down a depressing 14.4% to $1.60 a share. With a loss of that magnitude, there was always going to be a high number of shares being traded.
