Attached is a some traffic light formatting with custom formatting

You can see that the mimus 8% is viewing as amber but should be green

Basically i want to display green if the % decreases, red if % increases and amber if it stays the same

Thanks

If the displayed number, then the rules should be:
Green: >0 Number (NOT percent)
Amber: <=0 and >=0 Number
Red: <0 Number
