What is the crypto CFD gap risk? See how it may affect your trades.

Cryptos can be bought in CFDs as well. CFDs are financial contracts that pay the differences in the settlement price between the opening and closing of a trade. There is no delivery of physical goods or securities.

These are leveraged products which are not available 24/7 like the cryptocurrency market. There are market openings and closings, therefore crypto CFDs can open with large gaps during high volatility. 

Gaps are sharp breaks in price with no trading occurring in between. Cryptos are highly volatile products and if you buy them in CFD you can lose more than your initial capital, as losses are based on the full value of the position, rather than just the margin deposit.

According to Bybt.com data in May 2021, more than 775,000 traders have had their account liquidated in a single day, which equals $8.6 billion worth of crypto.
