Go do some reading about bonds/fixed income before you make any decisions. At the very least, you should understand what duration is, the basics of credit risk, and the differences of each part of the fixed income world (treasuries, corporates, MBS/ABS, and other). It is best to be well informed so you know what you are getting into.If it were my decision, I would probably not move more than 30% into bonds, and I would probably look for a low cost fund with a duration of 3 or less until rates finish moving up. After that, you could probably go further out.
