Oct. 5 (Bloomberg) -- British American Investment Co., which started trading on the Nairobi Stock Exchange on Sept. 8, climbed for a second day on a technical signal.

Shares in the diversified financial services group advanced 4.2 percent to 6.15 shillings as of the 3 p.m. close of trading in the capital, Nairobi.

British American’s 14-day relative strength index closed at 26.8 on Oct. 3, the day before the stock started its advance. A level below 30 signals to some technical analysts that the stock is poised to rise.
