SANTIAGO, March 12 (Reuters) - Chile's central bank is expected to cut its key interest rate by 25 basis points to 4.0 percent at its meeting this week, according to a majority of traders surveyed in a central bank poll published on Wednesday.

The bank has been in an easing cycle and already has cut the rate by 75 basis points since October as the economy has faltered.

It meets on Thursday to set monetary policy.
