LIMA Nov 12 (Reuters) - Peru's central bank held the benchmark interest rate steady at 3.50 percent for the second month in a row on Thursday as expected after inflation cooled in recent months.

All 10 economists polled by Reuters had forecast a hold this month after the central bank hiked the key rate in September to tame inflation. (Reporting By Mitra Taj)
