Linear Regression Channel

Linear Regression Channel is built on base of Linear Regression Trend representing a ussual trendline drawn between two points on a price chart using the method of least squares. As a result, this line proves to be the exact median line of the changing price. It can be considered as an equilibrium price line, and any deflection up or down indicates the superactivity of buyers or sellers respectively.

Linear Regression Channel consists of two parallel lines, equidistant up and down from the line of linear regression trend. The distance between frame of the channel and regression line equals to the value of maximum close price deviation from the regression line. All price changes take place within Regression Channel, where the lower frame works as support line, and the upper one does as resistance line. Prices usually exceed the channel frames for a short time. If they keep outside of the channel frames for a longer time than usually, it forecasts the possibility of trend turn.
