This paper shows that long-term inflation expectations have de-anchored from the ECB Governing Council’s inflation aim. Long-term expectations from the ECB’s Survey of Professional Forecasters have not returned to the levels that prevailed before the 2013-14 disinflation, and their distribution remains tilted to the downside. Long-term expectations have become sensitive to short-term ones and to negative surprises to inflation. Forecasters who have participated to most of the survey rounds are the most responsive to short-term developments in inflation.
