### Linear Regression Model

Model equation:

Y_{i} = α + β × X_{i} + ε_{i}

Top border of price channel:

Exp(Y_{i}) = Exp(a + b × X_{i} + 2 × s)

Bottom border of price channel:

Exp(Y_{i}) = Exp(a + b × X_{i} – 2 × s)

where:

i - observation number

Y_{i} - natural logarithm of META price

X_{i} - time index, 1 day interval

σ - standard deviation of ε_{i}

a - estimator of α

b - estimator of β

s - estimator of σ

Exp() - calculates the exponent of e

### Primary Trend

Start date: September 14, 2022

End date: July 12, 2024

a = 2.1136

b = 0.0025

s = 0.1325

Annual growth rate:

Exp(365 × b) – 1

= Exp(365 × 0.0025) – 1

= 145.82%

Price channel spread:

Exp(4 × s) – 1

= Exp(4 × 0.1325) – 1

= 69.90%

#### September 14, 2022 calculations

Top border of price channel:

Exp(Y_{741})

= Exp(a + b × X_{741} + 2 × s)

= Exp(a + b × 1,076 + 2 × s)

= Exp(2.1136 + 0.0025 × 1,076 + 2 × 0.1325)

= Exp(5.0300)

= $152.93

Bottom border of price channel:

Exp(Y_{741})

= Exp(a + b × X_{741} – 2 × s)

= Exp(a + b × 1,076 – 2 × s)

= Exp(2.1136 + 0.0025 × 1,076 – 2 × 0.1325)

= Exp(4.5000)

= $90.01

#### July 12, 2024 calculations

Top border of price channel:

Exp(Y_{1,199})

= Exp(a + b × X_{1,199} + 2 × s)

= Exp(a + b × 1,743 + 2 × s)

= Exp(2.1136 + 0.0025 × 1,743 + 2 × 0.1325)

= Exp(6.6736)

= $791.23

Bottom border of price channel:

Exp(Y_{1,199})

= Exp(a + b × X_{1,199} – 2 × s)

= Exp(a + b × 1,743 – 2 × s)

= Exp(2.1136 + 0.0025 × 1,743 – 2 × 0.1325)

= Exp(6.1436)

= $465.70

#### Description

- The primary trend is increasing.
- The growth rate of the primary trend is 145.82% per annum.
- META price at the close of October 3, 2024 was $582.77 and was inside the primary price channel.
