The gap down on the 2nd day perpetuates the downtrend. However, the 2nd day's close is above the midpoint of the 1st day's body. This suggests to the bears that a bottom could be forming. This price action is not nearly as discernable using bar charts as it is with candlestick charts. The more penetration of the close on the 2nd day to the 1st day's body, the more probable the reversal signal will succeed.
