stop out or margin call price levels

Abstract
This script finds the potential stop out or margin call price levels without considering timeframe.
This script computes stop out or margin call price levels that over leveraged positions buy cheap enough.
You can use this indicator to follow stop hunters.

Introduction
Stop hunting exists because of benefit conflict.
When most of retails traders are in the correct direction, big banks do not want to buy more expensive then retail traders.
Therefore, Big banks create sell pressure to make retail traders misunderstand their trade decisions are wrong.
When retail traders decide to cut loss, it is time big banks buy cheaper.
Many courses recommend average true range as a stop loss reference.
However, in different timeframe, average true ranges are different.
Therefore, we need to have a method to measure potential stop hunting levels which is not relative to timeframe.
There is a method because there are observable levels where over leveraged positions must cut loss.
For example, for a 100 leverage position, its margin call level is 0.005, so 0.005 drawdown is a potential stop hunting level.

Computing
For buy
potential stop out or margin call price level = low * ( 1 - ratio )
For sell
potential stop out or margin call price level = high * ( 1 + ratio )

Parameters
There are 4 levels available for adjusting.
The default values are :
(1) 0.001 : 500 leverage , 50% margin call
(2) 0.0025 : 200 leverage , 50% margin call
(3) 0.005 : 100 leverage , 50% margin call
(4) 0.010 : 50 leverage , 50% margin call

Usage
(1) Find an oversold price level. If you don't want to use an another indicator, you can use previous low.
(2) Memorize their stop out or margin call price levels of that level.
(2) Consider buy near those levels.
(3) If there are quick price rejection near those levels, better entry opportunities.
(4) Take profit and stop loss : you decide.

Conclusion
This script can find potential stop out or margin call price levels that over leveraged positions buy cheap enough.
