What is a “CME Gap”?

TradingView: CME’s Bitcoin Futures, 4-hour chart

On Jul 26, when the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME)opens, the price of Bitcoin futures shot up from $9,700 (closing price on Jul 24) to $9,900 (opening price on Jul 26). This sudden spike resulted in a gap formed in the CME, which also known as the ‘CME gap’.

Futures

Futures are agreements that require the parties involved to transact an underlying asset at a predetermined future date and price. Sometimes, there is no actual transaction of an asset taking place at the predetermined future date, also known as financially settled. Therefore, futures allow investors to gain exposure to the underlying asset without having to own it. On the agreed date, the parties involved calculate the price difference of the current price to the predetermined price. Hence, speculators use futures to speculate on the future price of the underlying assets.

It works the same as Bitcoin futures. Bitcoin speculators use Bitcoin futures to speculate on the future price of Bitcoin. If an investor is bullish on the future price of Bitcoin, they can buy the futures contract. On the expiry date of the contract, if the current Bitcoin price is higher than the stated price on his Bitcoin futures contract, he will earn the difference, and vice versa. At any point in time before the expiry of his contract, he can sell it off and earn the price difference between the price he bought and the price he sells at.
