6 Noted the fading, and made some suggestions for showing magnitude/amplitude of changes

Perhaps instead of unprofessional emoticons, you can use a simpler symbol to indicate a good or bad result.

In this case, I used a tick and a cross:

But since the indication is probably more important than the direction, we can place greater emphasis on the ticks and crosses:

Note how the arrows are now smaller and faded towards the background colour, so they are visually secondary to the good/bad icons, but they can still provide their information if the user wants it.

I also agree withlike Gino's suggestion to use zig-zag arrows to communicate an upward or downward trend (as if on a chart), but I didn't have time to draw thatthose!

An alternative way to display the trend would be with numbers: +20, -5, etc. Although displaying the values might seem like too much information, it could be argued that arrows without magnitude can be misleading or even dangerous.

For example +0.1 is closer to -0.1 than it is to +100, but arrows would represent the two positive changes as equivalent. Similarly, the concerning number in this dataset would be lost with only arrows: +3, +5, +1, -839, +2, +4, -3

As a compromise between numbers and arrows, double-headed arrows could be used for swings greater than 10, and triple-headed arrows for swings greater than 100.
