RIO DE JANEIRO, March 6 (Reuters) - Brazil posted a trade deficit of $2.125 billion in February, the trade ministry said on Thursday, a second straight monthly gap highlighting the rapid deterioration of the commodities powerhouse's trade balance.

The deficit was below market expectations for a $3.05 billion gap, according to the median forecast of 20 analysts surveyed by Reuters. The country posted a deficit of $4.06 billion in January, its largest monthly trade gap ever.

Brazil last year posted its smallest trade surplus in more than a decade as imports of fuel and consumer goods gained speed while exports eased.
