LONDON, Oct 15 (Reuters) – JP Morgan said on Wednesday it is raising its price forecast for gold for 2008 and 2009 on expectations investors will buy into bullion as a haven from risk.

However, it is trimming its expectations for platinum, palladium and silver prices on fears over falling demand for the more industrial precious metals.

The bank now sees gold prices at $904 an ounce in 2008, against a previous forecast of $884, and at $875 an ounce next year, up from $854 previously expectated.

“Gold and silver should continue to benefit from safe-haven related interest,” JP Morgan added in an emailed release.

Nonetheless the bank revised its silver prices lower, to $15.40 an ounce from $16.10 in 2008 and to $12.30 from $12.50 an ounce next year.
