When running translation the application seems to round incorrectly many accounts

Sample Scenario:

123456-Vacation Expense are SGD 421.05 for the Month of Jan 2020.
Have SGD to USD Period Average Rate = 0.736556
After running Translation balances should be

123456-Vacation Expense USD $310.1269 which should be round to nearest and amount should be $310.13 for the Month of Jan 2020.

However, When checked and System is not rounding correctly it is showing amount as $310.12.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Have a RC set as below

  Period Average Rate Type = Period Average
  Period End Rate Type = Period End
  Revenue and Expense Translation Rule = PTD
  Owner's Equity Translation Rule = YTD
2. The currencies precision and both have 2.
3. Run translation
  Based on the rules of translation:

  If Translation Rule is PTD, use Period Average rate type
  If Translation Rule is YTD, use Period End rate type.
  If Translation Rule is not selected, use Period Average rate type
  The system should use the Period Average rate and the calculation the user expects seems correct.
