Does the volume tool show the corresponding contracts traded in the underlying?

Question

If one enables the volume tool, does it show the amount of underlying contracts traded in the futures market that the CFD resembles?

The volume figures are a bit cloudy as many assets are traded on a number of exchanges and FX just uses tick volume, here is a link to a similar question posted a while back.

I am not following.

Is the volume of SP500 CFDs reflective of the underlying futures volumes or not?
Likewise for other assets such as crude e.g.

It is confusing.

Thank you.
What about the continuous cash-contracts of indices e.g.?

    • A post about trade management. I did not follow my playbook with respect to the hourly charts and at this point on the charts I was sucking the air between my teeth sitting on a loss short the Nikkei. But the longer time frame aspect of the trade idea was not invalidated. The resistance at around 23400 had not been breached and the Dow was still below the 50 Day MA. I was prepared to start scaling out at a loss if that resistance was breached but a series of lower highs emerged on the hourly charts. As Mr Dante says try to open a trade as close to the point where you know your wrong as you can, which I failed to do.
    • ...think I just hi-jacked this thread that I had started...
    • fake bottoming pattern...  7 green candles in a row till slightly above previous high, with low volume... then sudden reversal...  should have been clear then that something has changed...  (like some large trader switching to whipsawing suckers...) and that this was likely not going anywhere anymore today...:
