Let me repeat vkg's question slightly differently.
Is the gain 10 cents? Or is the gross proceeds 10 cents?
There's a big difference between:
1. a transaction with gross proceeds of $20,000.10 and a cost of $20,000.00 and
2. a transaction with gross proceeds of $0.10.
One can be ignored as a rounding error and one almost certainly needs to be reported.
