FEATURE REQUEST: add a minimum stocks to trade to order_target_xxx functions: Threshhold

I'm live trading 4 accounts and as most of them rebalance every X days/weeks etc. The main issue is that the function will often trade 1 or 2 shares based on a slight valuation movement in one stock. This is semantically correct but also racks up transaction costs as every transaction in IB is at least 1$

I suggest one of 2 changes:

1) a global parameter that determines for IB the minimum shares to be traded (as it doesn't matter for Robinhood)
2) an additional optional parameter for the order_target_xxx functions that determines the threshold of a minimum to be traded in an absolute number (to cater for short sales)
