Nifty 50 PE Chart
To give you this information in one place, we have compiled a monthly PE ratio chart/heatmap for the past 20 years and we’ll be keeping this updated.
You can access this chart at the link below
To follow the chart and know how you can read it, note the following points:
- The PE values are standalone and is sourced from the daily PE data directly from NSE. NSE does not have a consolidated PE.
- The historical monthly PE values are averages for that month
- The current month PE is as of the last traded date.
We have colour-coded the Nifty PE values so that you get a quick idea of whether the market is getting heated or is attractively valued. Note that this colouring has been done based on historical PE levels. It is not our recommendation on whether to buy or sell in the market.
The PE values are colour-coded as follows:
- Nifty PE value of less than 15 times are in dark green, indicating low PE valuations.
- Nifty PE value of over 15 and less than 18 times are in a lighter shade of green, closer to long-term averages
- Nifty PE of over 18 and less than 21 times are in a neutral off-white colour
- PEs over 21 are in shades of orange, tending to red when the PE is greater than 27 times
Essentially, the colours move from green (for attractive valuations) to orange (fair to high valuations) to red (very high valuations).

This chart too, is colour coded to enable you to know months of negative returns (in shades of pink and red) and months of positive returns (shades of green). It also gives you the calendar year returns to know the years of fall and rise in the Nifty for the last 20 years.
