With the PosTradeExitCategory() keyword we can figure out what caused a trade to exit (in this case, we'd be looking for a stop-loss exit category).

If we then store the current bar number when such an exit happens (see CurrentBar), we can then later on compare that stored bar number with the current bar number to see if 15 bars have passed.

I hope this makes sense and helps you get started. :)
