LONDON, Sept 11 (Reuters) - Britain sold a six-month treasury bill with a negative yield for the first time at a tender on Friday as investors locked in bets for more stimulus from the Bank of England.
The Debt Management Office sold 1 billion pounds ($1.3 billion) of a bill maturing on March 15 with an average yield of -0.000487%.
