    Hello Avi,

    Such functionality is not available out-of-the-box, but can be easily achieved.
    Here is a sample code of RadChart.BeforeLayout event handler:
    private void radChart1_BeforeLayout(object sender, EventArgs e) 
        foreach (ChartAxisItem item in this.radChart1.PlotArea.YAxis.Items) 
            if (item.Value < 0) 
                item.TextBlock.Appearance.TextProperties.Color = Color.Red; 
        foreach (ChartSeries series in this.radChart1.Series) 
            foreach (ChartSeriesItem item in series.Items) 
                if (item.YValue < 0) 
                    item.Label.TextBlock.Appearance.TextProperties.Color = Color.Red; 

    Note, that this code will change the colors of the labels that have negative values for both Y axis and all the series in the chart.
