Inflation expectations rise after Brazil c.bank decision - poll

BRASILIA, Jan 25 (Reuters) - Inflation expectations in
Brazil rose sharply last week after the central bank kept
interest rates on hold in a controversial decision, a central
bank poll of economists showed on Monday.
    Median forecasts for inflation in 2016 and 2017 rose to 7.23
percent and 5.65 percent respectively, up from 7.00 percent and
5.40 percent in the prior week's survey, according to the survey
of about 100 economists.
    The government targets inflation at 4.5 percent. 
    The central bank surprised investors last week by holding
interest rates steady at 14.25 percent instead of raising them
to keep inflation expectations near the target.
