Hi Craig,
maybe this is redundant, but I cannot agree more this DeltaOne

Btw, I don't thing “market timing” is bad by default, especially since there are different definitions as of what the market timing is.
I would not do it my self, but there are smart people out there, like Paul Merriman, www.fundadvice.com
who has a market timing system, kind of defensive system, that allows you to preserve the capital from big losses in bear market. Again, I would not follow it myself, but it is pretty well back-tested and makes some sense.
But what you want to do (keep your money in stocks, but buy bonds, when stock are getting cheaper), neither protects you from stock downfall, nor benefits you from cheap prices, so I don't see the point of doing it…
