Limit the digits after the period for dollar amounts and percentages to 2 digit. I'm getting things like "17.4837% gain, which is ridiculous. It takes up too much space and is very hard to read and compare with other numbers that don't have so many digits.

I had this issue and went into currency and reselected US Dollar and it went back to 2 decimal points. Try that

I agree with all comments so far. No one gets paid (or pays) in fractional cents, so anything shown beyond 2 decimals is worthless.
I don't think they did it on purpose.And it was not like this before. Must be they rolled out some updates and some programmer who has no idea about stocks put 4 decimal points for percentage gain.
There is no need to display 4 decimal digits like the example below:
LQMT 0.1170 +0.0090 +8.3333%
+8.33% would be much more clearer to see.
I find it cumbersome to see numbers carried out to the 3rd 4th or 5th position. Why can't all dollar amounts be rounded to cents and all percentages be rounded to 100ths. i.e. $99.99 and 99.99%, What is the purpose of carrying out the the 4 or 5th place?
