Convert Scan Criteria to Strategy in order to Backtest

I would like to take the following scan criteria and convert this into a strategy, that when true it will trigger a buy signal. I am looking to use this with stocks in order to back test my strategy in OnDemand. I have not figured out what will be the sell signal yet but needed to start somewhere.

@martinstocks87 The problem is that your scan looks at an entire market whereas a strategy can only be run on a single symbol... Therefore, your idea can't be coded in Thinkscript... You could, however, possibly use parts of your scan criteria to monitor a single symbol for Buy and Sell signals and paint them onto a chart...

Hmm ok thanks for the info. I did not know that it was single symbol specific when running a back test. Is it possible to create a strategy based off only the bottom 5 criteria?
