Currently when entering transactions in portfolios the price gets truncated at 2 decimal places, or to the nearest penny. Quite often, a trade will be executed at a range of prices, leading to an "average" price that has 3 decimal places.

Having to round off to the nearest 2 decimal places seems like a significant source of error, particularly when trading stocks that are below $10 and especially when the return per transaction is only on the order of a percent or two (as the case with high turnover strategies).
