Inflation Forecasts: Are Market-Based and Survey-Based Measures Informative?

Magdalena Grothe and Aidan Meyler

International Journal of Financial Research, 2018, vol. 9, issue 1, 171-188

Abstract: This paper analyses the predictive power of market-based and survey-based inflation expectations for actual inflation. We use the data on inflation swaps and the forecasts from the Survey of Professional Forecasters for the euro area and the United States. The results show that both market-based and survey-based measures have a non-negligible predictive power for inflation developments, as compared to statistical benchmark models. Therefore, for horizons of one and two years ahead, market-based and survey-based inflation expectations actually convey information on future inflation developments.
