    Here's one way:

    [group is sp500]
    and [close > 21 days ago close * 1.1]

    the "21 days ago" is a month in trading days
    the "1.1" is the close 21 days ago (the "1"), plus 10 per cent (the " .1")

    In addition to Markd's code you could also use the percent change or rate of change functions. Again 21 tradings days is about a month, (varies with holidays).

    PctChange(nPeriods,exp)
    Returns the percentage change in value over nPeriods for the expression.
    nPeriods - Number of periods
    exp - expression
    [PctChange (21,close) > 10]

    ROC(nPeriods, exp)
    The value of the Rate of Change (ROC) indicator.
    nPeriods: The number of periods used in the computation
    exp - expression
    [ROC(21,close) > 10]
