I'm new at this. Checked the FAQs and don't see an answer to my question...

After I put in my buy order, if the price goes up and I'm now spending more than I have in the account, what happens? Since it's an IRA ($2,000 limit) I wouldn't be able to add more. Is it safer to leave a buffer in the account for later? How much?

Thanks. Denise
