Set HTMLEncoded to false and then use this format string:
{0:$#,##0.00;-$#,##0.00);0}
Should do it!

I did it in rowdatabound event. Is there a property that I could use to do the coloring?

Uae a TemplateField instead:

Your code woould then be something like:
 

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Price">
    <ItemTemplate>
        <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text='$<%#
            Bind("Price") %>'>
        </asp:Label>
    </ItemTemplate>
</asp:TemplateField>
