FMCG Index is Giving Bullish Signals. Time to Buy?

May 9, 2022

The Nifty 50 index has beaten the Nifty FMCG index by a huge margin in the last 24 months from the pandemic lows.

Since the lows of March 2020, the Nifty 50 index is up 115% whereas the FMCG index is up 64%.

The charts suggest that this underperformance may come to an end.

Nifty FMCG Index Daily Chart


The chart above is the ratio chart of FMCG index to Nifty. Ratio charts are used to identify the performance of one security over another. If the ratio goes higher, the FMCG index will likely outperform Nifty and vice versa.

The recent fall halted just above the 2008 levels indicating the strong support zone.

On the monthly chart, the bullish range shift on the RSI (Relative Strength Index) signals an end to an underperformance of the FMCG index over the Nifty.

As the monthly bar of April engulfs the previous five months range, it marks a crucial low on the ratio chart. The FMCG index will remain strong till the ratio of 2 is not taken out on the ratio chart.

I think FMCG can be the sector of the 2022 and 2023. Investors should focus on the best outperforming stocks in the FMCG basket.

At present, the Nifty 50 index is trading at 16,360 levels while the Nifty FMCG index is down 0.9% at 36,950 levels.

From the index, Emami and Colgate are the top gainers while Marico and HUL are the top losers.
