Good post @SMCJB, there aren't hidden orders on CME. I read, don't remember where, that the volume of implied orders are not shown, is that true?

Implieds are executed as individual futures legs. The volume for a particular futures contract includes all volume resulting from implied trades. These trades are differentiated by specific markers. This is how charting platforms know when NOT to consider the last trade price on a futures leg that results from an implied trade for charting purposes (the OHLC etc will not be updated as a result of an implied trade) but the daily volume displayed in most charting platforms included implieds.
