Sun rises to the east of the U.S. Federal Reserve building in WashingtonBy Jonathan Spicer and Ann Saphir NEW YORK/SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Reserve's policy statement, unchanged for the last four months, will probably stay that way until at least September for one main reason: slow wage growth. Yet Fed officials, who gather for a policy meeting July 29-30, are in no rush to talk about hiking interest rates because wage gains remain stubbornly low, raising questions about just how close the United States is to full employment. While some of the more hawkish officials are anxious to tighten monetary policy and a number of private economists are warning the U.S. central bank risks falling behind on the inflation curve, Fed Chair Janet Yellen has signaled she will resist their pressure until the wage picture is clearer. Data on Tuesday showed only a modest rise in core consumer prices and the Fed's preferred inflation gauge is still below target, giving Yellen breathing room to continue her very cautious steps toward a rate increase, probably next year.
