I'm confused with what a negative slope means on an x-t and v-t graph.

On an x-t graph, I understand that a positive constant slope means uniform velocity and when the slope is 0, then the object is stationary. On a v-t graph, constant slope means constant acceleration and a zero slope means constant speed.

What does the negative slope mean? is the object slowing down?

Can someone please help me get a clearer understanding of this? THANKS
