### 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 HOLX 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: October 2, 2020
End date: May 23, 2024

a = 4.2451

b = 0.0000

s = 0.0675

Annual growth rate:

Exp(365 × b) – 1
= Exp(365 × 0.0000) – 1
= 1.65%

Exp(4 × s) – 1
= Exp(4 × 0.0675) – 1
= 30.98%

#### October 2, 2020 calculations

Top border of price channel:

Exp(Y343)
= Exp(a + b × X343 + 2 × s)
= Exp(a + b × 497 + 2 × s)
= Exp(4.2451 + 0.0000 × 497 + 2 × 0.0675)
= Exp(4.4024)
= \$81.65

Bottom border of price channel:

Exp(Y343)
= Exp(a + b × X343 – 2 × s)
= Exp(a + b × 497 – 2 × s)
= Exp(4.2451 + 0.0000 × 497 – 2 × 0.0675)
= Exp(4.1325)
= \$62.33

#### May 23, 2024 calculations

Top border of price channel:

Exp(Y1,258)
= Exp(a + b × X1,258 + 2 × s)
= Exp(a + b × 1,826 + 2 × s)
= Exp(4.2451 + 0.0000 × 1,826 + 2 × 0.0675)
= Exp(4.4621)
= \$86.67

Bottom border of price channel:

Exp(Y1,258)
= Exp(a + b × X1,258 – 2 × s)
= Exp(a + b × 1,826 – 2 × s)
= Exp(4.2451 + 0.0000 × 1,826 – 2 × 0.0675)
= Exp(4.1922)
= \$66.17

#### Description

• The primary trend is increasing.

End date: May 23, 2024

a = 3.3659

b = 0.0005

s = 0.0210

Annual growth rate:

Exp(365 × b) – 1
= Exp(365 × 0.0005) – 1
= 21.80%

Exp(4 × s) – 1

= 8.77%

#### September 26, 2023 calculations

Top border of price channel:

Exp(Y1,092)
= Exp(a + b × X1,092 + 2 × s)
= Exp(a + b × 1,586 + 2 × s)
= Exp(3.3659 + 0.0005 × 1,586 + 2 × 0.0210)
= Exp(4.2649)
= \$71.16
