Here is my circuit

Here is output of measurements:

va

I cannot understand why there is no current in negative direction. Current keeps flowing in positive direction when there is negative voltage.

    \$\begingroup\$ You have a current flowing during the negative half-period. And the current is positive because of the way (the direction) you have connected the "green" ammeter. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Do you mean no current flowing in negative direction or no current in negative direction of the voltage ? \$\endgroup\$

You have set both of your current probes to align with the diodes, rather than pointing to gnd. As a result both currents appear to be positive.

If you change PR1 to point towards gnd, you will get the behaviour you are expecting.
