I wouldn't worry too much about "the market" being at an all time high. You are investing incrementally, and I assume you have a long time horizon. Keep putting money into that index fund, add a small percentage of bonds if it makes you feel better, and forget about it for 20 years.

What happens in the next year or two isn't your concern. In fact, a market crash right now would be the best thing that could happen to you.

I've made more money since March 2009 than I have in any other period of my investing career. I kept on buying through the crash of '08 and am sitting pretty now.
