### 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 NJR 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: January 6, 2023

End date: December 1, 2023

a = 5.2099

b = -0.0009

s = 0.0401

Annual growth rate:

Exp(365 × b) – 1

= Exp(365 × -0.0009) – 1

= -26.95%

Price channel spread:

Exp(4 × s) – 1

= Exp(4 × 0.0401) – 1

= 17.40%

#### January 6, 2023 calculations

Top border of price channel:

Exp(Y_{979})

= Exp(a + b × X_{979} + 2 × s)

= Exp(a + b × 1,417 + 2 × s)

= Exp(5.2099 + -0.0009 × 1,417 + 2 × 0.0401)

= Exp(4.0709)

= $58.61

Bottom border of price channel:

Exp(Y_{979})

= Exp(a + b × X_{979} – 2 × s)

= Exp(a + b × 1,417 – 2 × s)

= Exp(5.2099 + -0.0009 × 1,417 – 2 × 0.0401)

= Exp(3.9105)

= $49.92

= Exp(5.2099 + -0.0009 × 1,746 + 2 × 0.0401)

= Exp(3.7878)

= $44.16

Bottom border of price channel:

Exp(Y_{1,206})

= Exp(a + b × X_{1,206} – 2 × s)

= Exp(a + b × 1,746 – 2 × s)
