You will notice when the Sales Amount equals the Revenue goal, the value of the KPITrend is 0. When the Sales Amount is greater than the Revenue Goal, the trend value is set to 1...and conversely, when the Sales Amount is less than the Revenue Goal, then a negative 1 is shown. The trend value usually ranges from -1 to 1 with -1 meaning down trend, 0 meaning no trend, and 1 up trend.
