When the futures market is in an upward trend the reverse count will begin with the first price bar to the left of the highest close at the beginning of the Reaction swing strategy. (In an upward trending futures market, the beginning of the Reaction swing strategy is the highest closing price before the correction.) The count will continue in reverse to the highest closing price of the previous Reaction swing strategy. The forward count begins on the first day to the right of the price bar with the lowest close at the end of the Reaction swing strategy and counts forward the same number as the reverse count as shown in Figure # 2.5.
