A symmetrical inflation target is a requirement placed on a central bank to respond when inflation is too low as well as when inflation is too high.

For example, the Bank of England and the Bank of Canada have symmetrical inflation targets. In contrast, the European Central Bank has a non-symmetrical inflation target—it is compelled to take action only when inflation is too high.
