RIO DE JANEIRO, July 18 (Reuters) - Brazil's currency jumped 1 percent in early trading on Friday after a poll showed President Dilma Rousseff and opposition candidate Aecio Neves statistically tied in a possible second-round vote in October.

The real , which had posted a sharp loss on Thursday on global geopolitical fears, rallied 1 percent to 2.2344 per dollar. It had closed the previous session weaker than 2.25 per dollar for the first time since the beginning of June. (Reporting by Walter Brandimarte; Editing by Jeffrey Benkoe)
