Key facts

• The primary trend is decreasing.
• The decline rate of the primary trend is 40.31% per annum.
• DG price at the close of May 24, 2024 was \$145.23 and was higher than the top border of the primary price channel by \$12.22 (9.19%). This indicates a possible reversal in the primary trend direction.
• The secondary trend is increasing.
• The growth rate of the secondary trend is 98.46% per annum.
• DG price at the close of May 24, 2024 was lower than the bottom border of the secondary price channel by \$13.25 (8.36%). This indicates a possible reversal in the secondary trend direction.

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 DG 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
