Hi @lynden

The sixty day high is

max(60, high)

Two per cent below is 98 per cent of that max high

max(60, high) * .98

So, close less than that is

and [close < max(60, high) * .98]

But, that statement alone can get anything below 98%, like less than .50 or .25 or .10 and that's probably not what you want. So you need to select a range. The .98 statement is the upper bound of the range - you need a lower bound - something that the close is greater than.

So, if you want, say, a 5% point range, you would add

and [close > max(60, high) * .93]

If you run this against the [group is sp500], you get 194 hits as of the close 5/24/16.

// begin 2% below 60 day high scan

[group is SP500]

and [close < max(60, high) * .98]
and [close > max(60, high) * .93]

// end scan
• Thank you so much for such a quick response.
