Why Trade the NSE Nifty Index?
You can trade the 'entire stock market' instead of individual securities.
Index Futures are:
- highly liquid
- large intra-day price swings
- high leverage
- low initial capital requirement
- lower risk than buying and holding stocks
- just as easy to trade the short side as the long side
- only have to study one index instead of 100's of stocks
Index futures are settled in cash and therefore all problems related to bad delivery, forged, fake certificates, etc can be avoided.
Since the index consists of many securities (50 securities) it is very difficult to manipulate the index.
You are required to pay a small fraction of the value of the total contract as margins. This means that trading in Stock Index Futures is a leveraged activity since the investor is able to control the total value of the contract with a relatively small amount of margin.
