Intraday call or put option buying is same as buying and selling futures?

If i feel the price will go up, other than buying futures, is it ok to buy call options? Both are more or less same when comes to intraday, right? or am i missing anything?

Should buy ATM, which has delta close to 1. If it is stock then can buy stock itself with leverage.

isn’t the delta of ATM is 0.5 to 0.6?? I think deep ITM have the delta close to 1.

You are right, my bad, ATM has .5, should be deep ITM.
