I'd like to suggest that this is the proper way to draw regression channels as it is the only way that I have ever drawn them because it makes logical sense to me. The logic is that you diagram "uptrends" separate from "downtrends" and analyze them independently.
The "lowest close" is the simplest way to diagram. You can also use the lowest-low and have the regression use the lows for its calculations instead of the close.
