The second day formation of small candlestick (either bullish or bearish or neutral) with a gap up indicates that the bulls are still holding the position but they are not able to push the price much higher, further indicates that the bears strength is loosening. A bearish candlestick on day 2 speaks a lot more about bulls weakness.
