Another observation is that you can always add the consecutive postive or negative numbers together, so you only need to deal with the case when the sequence is alternating, +-+-+-+-...+. That may simplify the logic. But tilly's solution is certainly elegant, the only "drawback" is that it's not symmetric, would be more beautiful if it went from both ends.
