Daily Candlestick Chart (FITB as at Sep 14, 2018):

After trading as low as 28.83 during the day, the stock bounced off the key support level at 28.89. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward. Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 29.14.
Fifth Third shows weakness in the short-term (in accordance with its long-term downtrend) with only the medium-term trend being bullish.
Selling could speed up should prices move below the close-by swing low at 28.70 where further sell stops might get activated. With prices trading close to this year's low at 28.29, downside momentum could accelerate should the share break out to new lows for the year.
