The RSI has been the best indicator for action points on GSK. When the bullish trend is at the end, the RSI turns down sharply even before the moving averages and MACD pick the trend.

This regularly happens when the RSI is close to 70. The RSI declines until it hits 40, at which point it turns up again sharply, signaling the beginning of a new bullish trend.

The bullish trend then lasts 1.5x the period lasted by the bear trend. Almost always, the momentum starts at key support levels.
