You need to make the formula a relative reference. Open "Manage Rules", double-click on "Cell value=..." and change

=ROUND($L$2,2)-0.02

to

=ROUND($L2,2)-0.02 (remove dollar)

click apply, and it should work!

You refer to $L$2 in the conditional formatting which means that D3 is looking at L2 not L3 as required. Try removing the $ signs, i.e. make cell value equal to

=ROUND(L2,2)-0.02

Because it is looking at L2 not L3. The formula should be:
=ROUND($L2,2)-0.02
and not
=ROUND($L$2,2)-0.02

Try the following formula in cell D3:
=ROUND(L3,2)-0.02
