"I recently paid a 5.75% load on my ROTH investments(which I know is not good and one of the reasons why I am leaving) so I would rather wait until the end of the year or longer to move those accounts over so I don't take even a bigger hit." That makes no sense. You can never get the load ...

Re: Rebalance w/ contribution calculation

Take your next contribution and add it to the total. For example, you have 1000, and you are adding 100. Now you will have 1100.
Then multiply by your target amounts to get your total per accounts.
Then see what the difference is from what you have and add accordingly.
