I'm wondering why was my rating increased by
+2 after I had received a downvote. Or it's something that is supposed to happen (by rules) when a downvote is received ?

To explain, let's give number to each upvote:
After #1 you had 190 daily reputation from votes only. After #2, you had 200. That's the limit. However, the downvote caused it to be 198, hence upvote #3 gave the maximum it could until the daily limit was hit again, which is only 2. Without that downvote, you would have seen just an empty space instead of reputation gain.
