### 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 WTS 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: May 6, 2021
End date: November 29, 2021

a = 3.4635

b = 0.0022

s = 0.0331

Annual growth rate:

Exp(365 × b) – 1
= Exp(365 × 0.0022) – 1
= 119.87%

Exp(4 × s) – 1
= Exp(4 × 0.0331) – 1
= 14.14%

#### May 6, 2021 calculations

Top border of price channel:

Exp(Y439)
= Exp(a + b × X439 + 2 × s)
= Exp(a + b × 637 + 2 × s)
= Exp(3.4635 + 0.0022 × 637 + 2 × 0.0331)
= Exp(4.9046)
= \$134.90

Bottom border of price channel:

Exp(Y439)
= Exp(a + b × X439 – 2 × s)
= Exp(a + b × 637 – 2 × s)
= Exp(3.4635 + 0.0022 × 637 – 2 × 0.0331)
= Exp(4.7723)
= \$118.19

#### November 29, 2021 calculations

Top border of price channel:

Exp(Y582)
= Exp(a + b × X582 + 2 × s)
= Exp(a + b × 844 + 2 × s)
= Exp(3.4635 + 0.0022 × 844 + 2 × 0.0331)
= Exp(5.3514)
= \$210.90

Bottom border of price channel:

Exp(Y582)
= Exp(a + b × X582 – 2 × s)
= Exp(a + b × 844 – 2 × s)
= Exp(3.4635 + 0.0022 × 844 – 2 × 0.0331)
= Exp(5.2191)
= \$184.77

### Secondary Trend

Start date: February 10, 2022
End date: August 7, 2024

a = 4.2908

b = 0.0006

s = 0.0698

Annual growth rate:

Exp(365 × b) – 1
= Exp(365 × 0.0006) – 1
= 24.10%

Exp(4 × s) – 1
= Exp(4 × 0.0698) – 1
= 32.23%

#### February 10, 2022 calculations

Top border of price channel:

Exp(Y633)
= Exp(a + b × X633 + 2 × s)
= Exp(a + b × 917 + 2 × s)
= Exp(4.2908 + 0.0006 × 917 + 2 × 0.0698)
= Exp(4.9729)
= \$144.44

Bottom border of price channel:

Exp(Y633)
= Exp(a + b × X633 – 2 × s)
