BRASILIA, Oct 27 (Reuters) - Market forecasts for Brazil's
economic growth, inflation and interest rates remained broadly
unchanged last week before the presidential election, a central
bank poll showed on Monday.
    In one of the few changes, economists saw a more modest
increase in interest rates next year to 11.50 percent, from
11.88 percent previously. Brazil's benchmark interest rate is
currently at 11.00 percent.
    Estimates for inflation and economic growth in 2014 and
2015, and for interest rates in 2014, remained unchanged in the
central bank survey, which features the median forecasts of
about 100 financial institutions.
    The forecasts were collected before Sunday's election, in
which President Dilma Rousseff was reelected for a second
four-year term.
