horsegoer...

I have a sharebuilder acount(IRA&Individual) that automatically withdraws money from my checking once a month. Now that I am thinking about this, it can't be good.

I am forced to accept the price at that given time(good or bad). I believe I,and anyone, should decide what price they will by an investment at.

Take a look at Morningstar's Primer on "Dollar Cost Averaging" and then you can decide for yourself whether DCAing is right for you or not:
