List of Highly Stable 10 Year Monthly EMA and MACD Cross Counts for Stocks

by Fat Premiums ()

This is our internally researched list of 78 highly stable stocks that features low numbers of EMA and MACD crosses in the span of ten years. For more information about how these numbers are calculated (and most importantly, what they mean) take a look at the exchange-traded funds list of stable decade-long tickers.

For the curious ones, we have used the following technical analysis indicators with our preferred parameters.

  • Chart Length (Historical Time Frame): 10 years
  • Chart Frequency: Monthly
  • EMA (2-line): 7, 27
  • MACD: 7, 27, 7

In terms of MACD and EMA cross counts, the lower the value the better. The last column, Low Volatility, is to showcase whether a given stock is considered stable. Obviously, a long-term investor who buys & holds stocks would like to have assets that tend to grow in value slowly & stable as opposed to an instrument that behaves like a wild roller coaster. With that said, we have simply listed a Yes & No value based on the stock’s price that was considered closest to the mean in the past decade.

Enough chit-chat, here’s our favourite list of stable stocks for the last ten years.
