AD737 - negative output voltage swing?

Hello,

I'm having trouble understanding the AD737 datasheet:

 

On page 4 it says:

 

Output characteristics:

[....]

Conditions:

no load; +Vs=5V; -Vs=-5V

[...]

Output Voltage Swing = -3.4V

 

 

Why is the output voltage swing negative? Is the output voltage always negative?

What means "no load"? Does it mean that there is no input signal, or that there is no resistive load on the output (pin 6)?

 

Thanks!
