Understanding the Bitcoin Gap at CME

The “CME Bitcoin Gap” at 39.7k refers to a situation where the price of bitcoin on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange jumped, leaving a gap at $39,700. Historically, such gaps tend to be filled, which means that the price will always return to this level. Price gaps in the CME futures market for bitcoin occur because its trading hours coincide with US trading hours, leading to potential price differences when the market opens and closes.
