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.
