German term or phrase:schwache Tendenz
From a report on the state of the European economy:
Während dieser auf Gutachterbewertungen beruhende Index tendenziell dem Marktgeschehen nachläuft, weisen auf Transaktionspreisen basierende Indikatoren bereits auf deutlichere Rückgänge hin. Dies lässt eine ****schwache Tendenz des NCREIF Property Index**** für die kommenden Quartale erwarten.
Explanation: In light of the sentence before, I think 'schwach' here means declining. "Weak trend" could be up or down. If I were translating, I would look for clues elsewhere in the text or if a graph is not included as part of the source article, I would try to locate the index or references to it elsewhere on the internet, e.g. Wikipedia.
