A particular game system which allows players or characters to communicate between themselves, Esp. ones that everyone in the game can 'hear' (the ooc channel, the newbie channel, etc.).
Think of a channel as a chat room for certain people, though that's not exactly what it is. A channel is something that you're added to, and only the people on the channel can see what's said there. You can create channels for your friends or you may be on one for your craft or area. That way you can say something OOCly and many people can hear you at once, rather than having to page. Channels are always OOC.*See OOC, Page

A channel is formed between parallel support and resistance lines. This pattern...
When prices trend between two parallel lines, the basic trendline and the channel line (rising resistance line). As the market nears or tests the upper and lower extremes of the channel, prices are more likely to react in the opposite direction in correction of the previous wave up or down.
A pattern comprising two parallel lines that circumscribe a price trend. The parallel comprise a support (the lower line) and a resistance (the upper line). The channel gives rise to presumption that price will not pass the support or resistance. But ultimately, all channels break. Thus the predictive value of a channel is subject to rules of interpretation which give a probability of turn or breakout depending on the relative term of the channel and the geometric patterns, if any, that are contained within the channel.
In charting, a price channel contains prices throughout a trend. There are three basic ways to draw channels: parallel, rounded and channels that connect lows (bear trend) or highs (bull trend).

An industry term for the high-tech distribution system. The term is used somewhat loosely and often refers to a channel segment, as in “the reseller channel.” The channel is sometimes also referred to by hardware and software vendors as “bloodsuckers,” “vampires,” “weasels,” and “those thieves.” The channel has its own special vocabulary for the vendors.
the immediate buyer; an alternative means of distribution employed or potentially employed to reach end buyers. For example, a new company with a new food product must persuade the retailer (the channel) to give it space on the supermarket shelf in order to reach the consumer (end buyer). In the insurance and real estate industries, agents and brokers are often used as a distribution channel. A channel is one of the variables used to define strategically relevant buyer segments (the others are buyer type and geographic buyer location).

Membrane proteins that are involved in particular transport of ions or uncharged molecules down their electrochemical potential gradient.
membrane protein (or an oligomeric cluster) involved in specific transport of ions or uncharged molecules down their chemical or electrochemical potential gradient. Most channels exist in two conformational states, open and closed. The opening can be accomplisahed (a) by a spreading electric field (potential-gated channels), (b) by binding a specific ligand (chemically gated channels), (c) by mechanical stress or strain (mechanically gated channels). When open, the specific site in the channel can transiently bind solutes from both sides of the membrane.
