position closed by margin call

I have been implementing tests with the library and the need arose for me to have a function/method that closes the positions by "margin call" as in real brokers. So i added the following just previous to the native "next" method.
def check_margin_call(self,leverage,margin,entryprice,next_price,market): perc_var_leveraged = ((next_price-entryprice)/entryprice) * leverage if market=='bull' and \ (perc_var_leveraged < 0) and \ abs(perc_var_leveraged) >= margin: return True elif market=='bear' and \ (perc_var_leveraged > 0) and \ abs(perc_var_leveraged) >= margin: return True else: return False def next(self): ... if self.position: if self.check_margin_call(leverage, margin, entryprice, next_price=close): self.log('POSITION CLOSED BY MARGIN CALL !!') self.close()
I leave this code snippet here in case it helps someone.
