Is there more risk involved in trading a CFD over trading the underlying asset?

Trading with higher leverage means there is a greater risk of loss, as well as potential for profit. Depending on the amount of leverage used, small moves in a CFDs price could generate significant changes in an account balance. However, please remember that due to the complex nature of CFDs and the risk involved with leveraged trading, you can sustain a total loss of your deposited funds.
