How to code - low of last daily bar must touch 200SMA AND weekly bar must touch 50WMA?

touches isn't a math operator. it will help you and others, if you think about and describe your rules more like math formulas.

you could say,
low of last daily bar = 200SMA
AND
weekly bar = 50WMA
AND
close > 200SMA

it is unlikely that 2 signals will have the same exact value, so it may never be true.
you could check if one signal crosses the other.
or you may need to check if one signal is within a $$ amount ( or % ) of the other.

i like to define different formula conditions in their own variables. i might want to reuse a value in another formula.

this is how to check if these 2 signals are within 0.02 of each other, and set it true if they are.
def x1 = (absvalue( weekly bar - 50WMA) <= 0.02 );

you could do this for the other 2 conditions
x2 = ...
x3 = ...

then combine them to see when all 3 are true
def all3 = x1 and x2 and x3;
