The price of any investment vehicle varies partly on the basis of its own fundamentals, and partially on the basis of how it compares to other investments. Even if the fundamentals for an investment remain unchanged, the price can go up because other investments are looking worse and money is shifting to it as a better choice. Likewise if everything else looks better it will not matter than the fundamentals are unchanged, money will move out and the price go down.
