Though Nifty closed with the gains on Thursday, the overall market breadth was negative and broad market indices like midcap 100 and small cap 100 of NSE exchange have closed on a flat to minor negative note. This could be a cause of concern for longs at highs.
A small body of positive candle was formed with minor upper and lower shadow. Technically, this pattern indicates a formation of high wave or spinning top type formation at the highs, which apparently looks like reversal of present uptrend.

Hence, any negative implication arising out of this pattern could be ruled out.
