Trading Futures: Indices or Individual Stocks?

  • Total voters
To all the traders out there trading in futures segment, what is your preference for trade? Indices like NIFTY, BANKNIFTY or individual stocks?

Please give reasons for the preference if possible.
I prefer individual stocks. I think that out of habit. You can also find news releases on individual promotions. There are many individual shares. You can browse through a large list looking for something interesting.
