Sounds reasonable, but it may not work out in practice. Often the reason the market is declining is because the Fed has decided to raise interest rates. In this case, bonds decline as well. Very short term bonds or money market is the best place in that instance.

Right. Very short term bonds, MMF, or anything that I think would fit "fixed income" definition (I know, technically MMF is CCE).

WWYD? Put contributions toward usual places, pretending bear market isn't happening, or temporarily contribute toward safer areas (fixed income, MMF, etc)?
