ABCD pat Reciprocal for Amibroker (AFL)

/* ABCD PATTERN DETECTION

- based on earlier work done by joy.edakad@gmail.com, see:
	www.inditraders.com/amibroker/1934-afl-harmonic-patterns.html
	file: Harmonic1.1.afl (2009)
- using ATR type Peaks and Troughs.
- Nomenclature of variables, constants and arrays following code
	from David Keleher.

Reciprocal ratios following Scott M. Carney,
Harmonic Trading (2010)

C Point Retracement		BC Projection
0.382 					2.618
0.50 					2.0
0.618 					1.618
0.707 					1.41
0.786 					1.27
0.886 					1.13

This code looks for a C point retracement (AB leg retracement)
within the margin of error (see parameter window). Then it
looks for the reciprocal to that retracement, retracing the
BC leg towards point D (again within the same margin of error).
The margin of error is set to 5% by default.
