Thanks for advice and explanations of the movestay command.
But i'm still a bit confused about the code. Please correct me if i wrong.

I'm trying to estimate whether a firm faces bank borrowing constraint or unconstraint, 
in other words, whether short-term bank loans an observation receive (as on balance sheet) is the quantity demanded (unconstraint because the demand is fulfilled), or quantity supplied (constraints because the bank issue only amount less than demanded). 

	qDemand = x1b1 + e1
	qSupply = x2b2 + e2
	qTransacted = min (qDemand, qSupply)

the dependent variables qDemand and qSupply are unobserved, 
what observed dependent variable is only qTransacted, which is the short-term bank loans that actually transacted with banks. 

I'm trying to find whether qTransacted belongs to qDemand (unconstraints), or belongs to qSupply (bank constraints)

So, in the movestay command, is that correct if:
	depvar1 and depvar2 = short-term bank loans
	x1 = those factors affecting depvar1
	x2 = those factors affecting depvar2
	i'm very confusing on the selection part:  because my rationale is that 
		1) an observation belongs to regime 1 (face borrowing constraint) if the demand for bank loans is greater than supply. 
		2) an observation belongs to regime 2 (unconstraint) if demand for bank loans is EQUAL TO / NOT greater than supply. 

Please i desperate for your advices. Thanks a lot.
