1) Interest rates are near generational lows and the general consensus is that it is only a matter of time before they start going up.
2) You probably have a 20+ year investment horizon.
3) Assuming that you will be investing more money in your retirement funds then you will get the benefit of dollar cost averaging on any stock purchases.
4) Your investing style does not include spending a lot of time managing your investments.
Now is a good time to underweight bonds and invest in the broadest lowest cost index fund that you can find. If it fits your comfort level going with 100% stocks for the next ten years would not be unreasonable.
