### Linear Regression Model

Model equation:
Yi = α + β × Xi + εi

Top border of price channel:
Exp(Yi) = Exp(a + b × Xi + 2 × s)

Bottom border of price channel:
Exp(Yi) = Exp(a + b × Xi – 2 × s)

where:

i - observation number
Yi - natural logarithm of CHE price
Xi - time index, 1 day interval
σ - standard deviation of εi
a - estimator of α
b - estimator of β
s - estimator of σ
Exp() - calculates the exponent of e

### Primary Trend

Start date: August 3, 2023
End date: March 1, 2024

a = 4.5990

b = 0.0010

s = 0.0309

Annual growth rate:

Exp(365 × b) – 1
= Exp(365 × 0.0010) – 1
= 44.02%

Exp(4 × s) – 1
= Exp(4 × 0.0309) – 1
= 13.16%

#### August 3, 2023 calculations

Top border of price channel:

Exp(Y1,113)
= Exp(a + b × X1,113 + 2 × s)
= Exp(a + b × 1,613 + 2 × s)
= Exp(4.5990 + 0.0010 × 1,613 + 2 × 0.0309)
= Exp(6.2728)
= \$529.97

Bottom border of price channel:

Exp(Y1,113)
= Exp(a + b × X1,113 – 2 × s)
= Exp(a + b × 1,613 – 2 × s)
= Exp(4.5990 + 0.0010 × 1,613 – 2 × 0.0309)
= Exp(6.1492)
= \$468.34

#### March 1, 2024 calculations

Top border of price channel:

Exp(Y1,258)
= Exp(a + b × X1,258 + 2 × s)
= Exp(a + b × 1,824 + 2 × s)
= Exp(4.5990 + 0.0010 × 1,824 + 2 × 0.0309)
= Exp(6.4837)
= \$654.38

Bottom border of price channel:

Exp(Y1,258)
= Exp(a + b × X1,258 – 2 × s)
= Exp(a + b × 1,824 – 2 × s)
= Exp(4.5990 + 0.0010 × 1,824 – 2 × 0.0309)
= Exp(6.3601)
= \$578.29

a = 5.7510

b = 0.0004

s = 0.0157

Annual growth rate:

Exp(365 × b) – 1
= Exp(365 × 0.0004) – 1
= 13.71%

Exp(4 × s) – 1
= Exp(4 × 0.0157) – 1
= 6.48%

#### October 27, 2023 calculations

Top border of price channel:

Exp(Y1,173)
= Exp(a + b × X1,173 + 2 × s)
= Exp(a + b × 1,698 + 2 × s)
= Exp(5.7510 + 0.0004 × 1,698 + 2 × 0.0157)
= Exp(6.3802)
= \$590.03

Bottom border of price channel:
