Fifth Third (FITB) is a bank with an upward bias above the previous peaks. After spending almost 2.5 years building a ceiling on the stock, FITB is finally pushing through. The SCTR started pushing up above 75 back in July. Last week was the break above the trend line.
With the Fed meeting tomorrow, it will be important to see how the bank stocks react. Some of the overseas situations on bank stocks are not as favourable, but this primarily US bank looks good.
I spent an hour chatting with Martin Pring this morning and we worked through a lot of charts over a skype call. Martin has some great ideas planned for this week and I am building a few new ones for my presentation as well.
