Daily Candlestick Chart (FITB as at Aug 10, 2018):
Friday's trading range was $0.36 (1.23%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $0.56. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.
Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 29.36, the share closed below it after spiking as high as 29.42 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.
The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term. Fifth Third broke below the 20-day moving average at 29.48 today for the first time since July 19th.
With prices trading close to this year's low at 28.29, downside momentum might speed up should the stock break out to new lows for the year.
