Is there a formulas which will look at a number of cells and return a value which relates to whether the values are increasing or decreasing at that point in time? Thanks.

How to total the visible cells?
From the first blank cell below a filtered data set, press Alt+=. Instead of SUM, you will get SUBTOTAL(9,)

Look at the 'LINEST' function.

You can get the slope of a series of points from there ( you might want to also check out the 'INDEX' function to get the parameters of LINEST ).
