Ann Coleman (I think it was her) created a wonderful tool that does for you automated what the previous replier spelled out manually. It's called the Foolish Buy Calculator. Check the calculator section or do a search on the words. I used it for my IRA account and it's WONDERFUL.

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.
