Buy Capital Goods in May

Apr 30, 2021

Brijesh Bhatia, Research analyst

The month of May started on a bearish note which prolonged for 3 weeks before the bulls countered strongly during the F&O expiry week reclaiming 15,000 on the Nifty.

Metals (+21%) and pharma (+10%) lead the April series while realty (-7.5%) and PSU (-5%) were laggards.

The seasonality analysis of May for last 25 years has given an average return of 0.72% with 12 bullish years and 13 bearish.

So which sector will lead the way in May 2021?

Nifty: The Gaps Saga

Nifty has underperformed against global and EM indices during April 2021 on the back of rising Covid-19 cases and lockdowns in India.

The multiple indecisive candlestick pattern on weekly chart during rangebound markets seems to be ending as trending momentum is likely to resume.

BSE Capital Goods Index - The Big Bull of May

BSE Capital Goods Index has underperformed against the Sensex for the last 6 weeks. We expect an underperformance to end soon.

Weekly Chart


The weekly chart of the capital goods index has broken out of a multi-year trendline connected from the high of 2018 and 2019 in the start of 2021 and hit the high of 22,775.

But in the recent retracement, it has re-tested the breakout level.

The doji candlestick pattern formed in the week ended 23 April 2021 and confirmed the reversal by forming bullish candlestick last week.

The reversal structure is formed at 21 WEMA supporting the bullish scenario.

Daily Chart


With the weekly chart indicating a breakout and retest, the bullish harmonic pattern is formed on daily chart too.

The bullish black swan harmonic pattern is visible and the reversal from the perfect Fibonacci level confirms the reversal.

The weekly and daily chart confirms the reversal. Capital goods stocks can be the leaders in the month of May.


The breakout of descending triangle at 14,600 on the daily chart as well as the morning star bullish candlestick on the weekly chart, indicates the bulls are in a strong position on D-street.

The Nifty is heading to 16,000 as indicated by the ADX as long as the recent low of 14,151 holds.

Capital Goods Index is likely to be the leader in the month of May and traders shouldn't miss this money making opportunity.

Mr Brijesh,


I have seen your past videos and analysed as well.

You are on dot, precise and mastered the art.

1. Your prediction of FMCG stock rally - HUL / Britannia

2. Your latest Financials / NBFC - HDFC twins / Bajaj twins / Axis / ICICI bank

3. Metals story

All these panned out well.

Taking your today's prediction video ahead, I would like to share my point of view. If Ms Richa [Hidden Treasure / Small cap incharge] and yourself upper prediction can be amalgamated and a Special update is release by Ms Richa as to HOLD of past recommendation, I shall be greatful.

My personal investment in Small caps has gone for a toss as I invested in those recommendation which currently trade @ 10% to 40% of purchase price [i am not naming scrip now].
In anxiety, when rally started I sold a few @ cost after holding for 4/5 years and now those are trading 50% higher like cosmos Films.

Summing up, after holding for 4/5 years, if holding further for next 6 months if appreciation is being met based on your above view; I shall be really grateful.
I understand there may be many investors like me who have invested their money and got stuck or booked loss.

If need be, I can share list of scrips separately, once I get a life support mail from the team.
