Distance (percent) from all time high/low

Is it possible to scan for percent distance from all time low/high, within a number of bars? I'm basically trying to scan for stocks that are starting to show a potential recovery from all time lows, so for example it could return a stock that has been trending up the past 10 days from its all time low. I've tried using the Price Performance studies, but keep coming up empty.

Sort of, but the daily data limit for scanning only goes back four years. The all time high or low might not fall within that time. Although, you could perhaps use a modular query with multiple scripts. One script might check the current position between the highest high and lowest low on the monthly time frame, which goes back twenty years. The second script would run on the daily time frame, and check for your ten day trend. You would then just need to place both in the "all of the following" condition group.

There is still no guarantee that that the stocks being scanned are less than 20 years old though.
