    Negative correlation. 

    As 'x' increases , 'y' decreases. 

    This essentially produces a negative slope, so it is negative correlation. 

    NB Perfect negative correlation would produce a slope of '-1', of which all the points lie on the slope.  This is not the case in this example, but the trend is in that direction.
