BRASILIA, July 27 (Reuters) - Brazil's central bank will
probably raise interest rates less aggressively than previously
expected in coming months as the economy tumbles, a weekly
central bank poll of economists showed on Monday.
    The median forecast of about 100 financial institutions for
Brazil's benchmark rate at end-2015 fell to 14.25 percent from
14.50 percent in the prior week's survey.
