Nifty Pharma: What Turns A Strongest Sector Into Weakest One?

Nifty Pharma: What Turns A Strongest Sector Into Weakest One?

  • - Nifty Pharma Looks ready to see further sliding moves.

- Sino-U.S. tariff trade war has damaged this sector at the most.

- Final Deal on Sino-U.S. trade issue will once again turn this sector into most favorite investment destination in 2020 - 2021.

- Nifty 50 may further feel the growing bearishness in Nifty Pharma.

On analysis of the Nifty Pharma, in different time frames, I find that the Nifty Pharma has been constantly showing weakness since the advent of the Sino-U.S. Tariff Trade War; remain un-noticed till it showed heavy sell-off during the last three weeks. No doubt that the Nifty Pharma looks to be the weakest point of Nifty 50, showing persistence in a downward trend since September 2018; despite a bout of bouncing moves shown by Nifty 50 during this period when the Nifty 50 touched its recent peak at 12,185 on July 5th, 2019 before tumbling downward.

No doubt that the Nifty Pharma used to be one of the favorite sectors for Indian investors till April 6th, 2015, when Nifty Pharma touched its life-time peak at 14,050, but since then after following a consolidation phase till September 10th, 2018, amid a range from 8080 – 12051, started to follow downward trend till October 7th, 2019; after witnessing a steep fall on a daily basis.

I find that the growing damaging impact of economic slowdown at a global level has impacted this sector of the Indian equity markets up to the worst extent, besides other sectors due to export-interruptions, etc. No doubt that the Nifty Pharma is still showing more weakness due to weak signals in the weekly chart; as its current position below ‘Ichimoku Cloud’ and the formation of three outside bearish candles in a weekly chart; makes the situation worse.


Finally, I conclude that since the Nifty 50 has also started to feel the growing bearishness of Nifty Pharma over its movements during the last few trading sessions; but further sell-off in Nifty Pharma will drag down Nifty 50 into more negative territory. Secondly, the growing fear of hurdles in Sino-U.S. Tariff talks on October 11 -12 in Washington. But, I find that if the tariff trade tussle between the two major economies of the world is resolved successfully, Nifty Pharma would be the topmost sector of Nifty 50 to attract investors’ attention. I find that the Nifty Pharma will become the investors’ hub in 2020 – 2021. No doubt, that some of the constituents of Nifty Pharma are still showing their strength, which makes them next investment jewels during 2020 - 2021.
