The process is similar when the futures market is in a downward trend. The reverse count begins with the first price bar to the left of the beginning of the Reaction swing and counts in reverse to the lowest close of the previous Reaction swing. (In a downward trending futures market, the beginning is the lowest closing price of the low pivot point before the correction.) The forward count begins with the first price bar to the right of the highest close at the end of the Reaction swing and counts forward the same number as the reverse count as shown in Figure #2.6
