Nov. 30 (Bloomberg) -- Kenya Commercial Bank Ltd., the East African nation’s biggest lender by assets, climbed for the first day in 14 after falling below a technical level that indicates the stock is poised for a rise.

The shares advanced 0.3 percent to 15 shillings by the 3 p.m. close in the capital, Nairobi.

Kenya Commercial’s 14-day relative strength index closed at 25.2 yesterday, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. A level below 30 signals to some technical analysts that the stock is oversold and set for a rise.
