It is possible I've missed a detail but in RL a TB should only be for
*one* currency or commodity or for many if they are each indicated.
It is near impossible to reconcile a multi-variate TB because the
underlying values are changing as you attempt it.
The reconciliation of the separate bits can involve thinking but is the
sensible approach. You take a view about values either before the TB
reconciliation or after, some governments have rules about this, etc.
I don't know anyone that does a multivariate  TB and expects it to
balance live .
I pull the TB's for each class and give them to the people to reconcile,
at the end we put them together. I suggest you try this approach.
I'm surprised and mildly disappointed JohnR has found it necessary to
contribute to this thread. I think he has better things to do.
 more than one commodity / currency / something that changes during a
minute / hour / day / week / month.
 not a joke, I don't think big banks do it and they are way ahead of
little people like you or I.
never vote for a man like Trump if you believe in honest accounting, he
can't add up :)
