Hi Cherie -
No ...nothing is moving down or side with the Rotation Arrows you 
chose...if you want to move down, then that is a different movement arrow...

To explain...The Rotation Arrows do not show any traveling. They mean 
"in one place", so even though they may look like they travel, they do 
not. The spoke or line through  the arrow means your forearm...the 
forearm stays in one place while the  rotation occurs around it, like an 
axis...the forearm is the axis or center of the rotation...

Meanwhile, the beginning position, no matter whether it travels or stays 
  in one place, must be at the beginning of the arrow, and the ending 
position must be at the end of the arrow...that is the logic behind 
beginning and ending positions...both positions do not have to be 
written as you know, but if you want them to actually move down 
diagonally then I can see why you wrote both positions...

We can discuss other ways to write QUOTE too...

See attached...
