Hello Honza!
Thank you for this question...

The Fast Dynamic symbol can point either direction, and it means the  
same thing: Fast Movement.

Sometimes we point them different directions because in some cases, it  
looks better to have the Fast Movement symbol point into the "center  
of the body"...so if you have two Fast Movement symbols...one for the  
left movement and one for the right movement, we write the  Fast  
symbols pointing into the center of the sign, so the right one would  
be pointing left, and the left one would be pointing right ;-))

But there is no difference in meaning...still means Fast...
