                                                   Question on QS Language from pdf

I think QS staff needs to add more explanation or examples to the various functions listed in the QS language pdf.

For example:

SETSIMSTOP Simulation stops
SetSimStop( ENUM stop type, ENUM stop entry, ARRAY value, ARRAY reentry)
Update the simulator stops
SetSimStop(_StopLoss, _Percent, 20, 1)

What are the various options available for the ENUM stop type? I know one is _StopLoss. What are the others?
What are the various options available for the ENUM stop entry? One is _Percent, what are the other types available?
What does reentry signify? 1 means after one bar or what?

There are numerous such examples. More clarification will help us newbies trying to learn.

Thank you for your help.

Best Answer
While typing the formula and while your cursor is in the ENUM position, use CONTROL+SPACE to display all available values.
You can also use the Add Indicator/Method button.

Re-entry tells the backtester to ignore any symbol that was previously sold using a stop for N bars.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
