What I did on my last trade was make the trade a limit order near the max amt I could afford and still stay within my IRA account (remember to figure in the commissions!) I ended up with enough money in my account to have purchased one more share, but I don't mind--better than to be overdrawn.

What happens when the limit order doesn't go through? Do you still have to pay a commission, or is it like it never happened?

Thanks,
