Feature Request: Max number of stocks to purchase

For Ports and Sims:

Add a trade system setting to set a max number of symbols to purchase each rebalance cycle.

For example:

1.2 Position Sizing
Type '% of Market Value'
Ideal Weight New Pos 5%
Aprox. Number of Positions 20.0
Max Weight Deviation 10%
<b><i>Max Symbols per Rebalance 5</i></b>

Reason:

Stagger purchases for an additioal mechanism to reduce risk by staggering purchases.

Note:
[PREFERRED]
This could also be incorporated as a condtional purchase rule
maxSymb(condition, trueQty, falseQty)
maxSymb(SMA(5,0,#BENCH) < SMA(5,1,#BENCH) ,10,5)
View the feature request here.

Re: Feature Request: Max number of stocks to purchase

Hi,
Is there no way with all the current functions and features available to write a buy rule that forces a sim or port to stagger purchases?

If not, please vote for this request. I think it would be very useful.
