Tradesim SetTimeStop Function

Hi,

I am new to Tradesim so can somebody explain to me when i call the SetTimeStop function to exit a trade after say ten bars at what price should Tradesim exit at. I thought that it should exit the following day at the open but it looks like it exits at whatever parameter I use as a exitprice for Tradesim.

So if my exit price parameter is the Mov(C,20,E) with a value of $5.00 and on the 11th bar the open was $4.90 Tradesim tries to exit at the $5.00 mark and than errors becasue the exit day high was less than the exit price.

Thanks for your help and my apologies if this is in the wrong area.

Pieter
