Fifth Third (FITB) Stock Chart Trending Lower, Barron's Sees Turnaround

FITB has been under pressure after topping out in June-August, see chart above. Prices have not mounted any meaningful upside attempt despite a rising On-Balance-Volume (OBV) line and a bullish divergence between the price action and the momentum study. Prices remain below the declining 50-day simple moving average.
