Why is the dollar soaring against the euro and other currencies?

Since a few weeks the dollar is actually getting stronger compared to the euro, the pound, and other currencies.
Why is this? You guys talk only about the dollar losing its value. I don't understand.

The value of gold is also decreasing since March 2008. Why?

Is this really a good time to buy gold?
