Two way movement ending in a doji showing indecision. The 50 dema continues moving away from the 200 dema bearishly.

Half Hourly Chart
The latest action shows a diamond pattern which is essentially a distribution pattern. The moving averages on half hourly charts are all bullishly aligned. This increases the possibility of the diamond pattern may turn out to be a continuation pattern and break out bullishly in continuing with the short term uptrend since 5232. Volumes may give more insight into the bearish or bullish confusion. See the daily chart below.
Low volumes during diamond formation and negative divergence on stocahstics points to the diamond being bearish.
Verdict will be out only when the Nifty tells us whether it is bullish ore bearish. The short term trader should watch for a break of the red uptrendline on half hourly charts to pare long positions. The broad trend is down so tighten your stops on longs.
