Sooner or later interest rates will go up, and then bonds will tank. So I see no reason to go into bonds at this time, unless you limit yourself to very short term bonds.

I do not think that there is anything you should buy and hold forever. Things fluctuate, and you need to be able to take advantage of those fluctuations.

Reminded of J. P. Morgan's answer when somebody asked him what the market was going to do. He said that it will fluctuate.
