Valid values are:

0 = Round to nearest

1 = Round down

The default is for rounding to be at the discretion of the executing broker or fund manager.

e.g. for an order specifying CashOrderQty <152> or OrderPercent <516> if the calculated number of shares/units was 325.76 and RoundingModulus <469> was 10 - "round down" would give 320 units, "round up" would give 330 units and "round to nearest" would give 320 units.
