Gold doesn't always get along with a rising dollar or higher interest rates. Proof of that is its performance in the past week where gold futures lost about 1.6 percent in the second negative week in a row.

But investors are still putting money into bullion even as these classic anti-gold trends pop up. Something bigger may be afoot.
