A price gap is the absence of a quote for a certain period of time, which is clearly visible on the chart, perhaps best on candlestick charts.
A gap appears on the chart when the first quotation of a new candle is very different from the last quotation of the previous candle. It can also appear at the release of news, or at the opening of the market. These situations are beyond the control of the broker and clients accept this situation as general market risk, in accordance with the terms and conditions when registering an account with us.
But do not forget: gaps can have a positive or negative impact on your trading, depending on which side of the market you placed your order on.
Please never forget: CFD trading allows you to trade in rising and falling markets! You can find more information about gaps in our article.
