Low High from United Traders scan?

This is their indicator. It works really well. Is there any way to turn it into a scan in order to see stocks that are making new highs over and over?
I've tried before but it is too intensive for TD's servers.

Code:
input marketOpen = 830;
input marketClose = 1500;
input intraDaySpan = {Default "SameDay" , "OverNight"};
input numberOfDays = 1;
input numberOfYears = 0;
plot newhigh;           #I'm adding this for scans.   See the end


def okToPlot = GetLastDay() - numberOfDays <= GetDay() and GetLastYear() - numberOfYears <= GetYear() ;

def OpenCounter =  SecondsFromTime(marketOpen);
def CloseCounter = SecondsTillTime(marketClose);

def MarketHours = if OpenCounter >= 0 and CloseCounter >= 0 then 1 else 0;

def beforeMidnight = OpenCounter >= 0 and CloseCounter <= 0;
def afterMidnight = OpenCounter <= 0 and CloseCounter >= 0 ;

def Today ;
def hideChartBubbles ;
rec DailyHigh ;
rec DailyLow ;

switch (intraDaySpan) {
    case "SameDay":
    Today = if GetDay() != GetDay()[1] then 1 else 0;
    DailyHigh = if MarketHours then if high > DailyHigh[1] then high else DailyHigh[1] else high;
    DailyLow = if Today then low else if MarketHours then if low < DailyLow[1] then low else DailyLow[1] else low;
    hideChartBubbles = MarketHours;
    case "OverNight":
    Today = 0;
    DailyHigh = if beforeMidnight or afterMidnight then if high > DailyHigh[1] then high else DailyHigh[1] else  high;
    DailyLow = if beforeMidnight or afterMidnight then if low < DailyLow[1] then low else DailyLow[1] else low;
    hideChartBubbles = beforeMidnight or afterMidnight;
};

AddLabel(close > 0, Concat( "Dly High: " , DailyHigh), Color.GRAY);
AddLabel(close > 0, Concat( "Dly Low: " , DailyLow), Color.GRAY);
AddLabel(close > 0, Concat("Range: " , (DailyHigh - DailyLow) / TickSize()), Color.GRAY);
plot TodaysHigh = if okToPlot and MarketHours then DailyHigh else Double.NaN;
plot TodaysLow = if okToPlot and MarketHours then DailyLow else Double.NaN;
TodaysHigh.SetDefaultColor(Color.GREEN);
TodaysLow.SetDefaultColor(Color.RED);

AddChartBubble(DailyHigh > DailyHigh[1] and hideChartBubbles and okToPlot, DailyHigh, "Hi", color.GREEN, yes);

AddChartBubble(DailyLow < DailyLow[1] and hideChartBubbles and okToPlot, DailyLow, "Lo", color.RED, no);

Alert(DailyHigh > DailyHigh[1] and MarketHours, "New Hi", Alert.ONCE);

Alert(DailyLow < DailyLow[1] and MarketHours, "New Low", Alert.ONCE);


This is my scan:

Code:
if DailyHigh > DailyHigh[1] and MarketHours {
    newhigh = 1;
} else {
newhigh = 0;
}

@ezrollin Per your request, I have converted the study you posted above into a scan. This is based on the underlying logic as contained in your study. I have configured this as a bullish scan. If you'd like to set this up as a bearish scan, just change the plot statement on the last line to

Code:
plot scan = bear;

I have tested both bullish as well as bearish scans against the S&P 500 (daily chart) For bullish I get 83 results and for bearish scan I get 273 results

Here is the scan code

Code:
input marketOpen = 830;
input marketClose = 1500;
input intraDaySpan = {Default "SameDay" , "OverNight"};
input numberOfDays = 1;
input numberOfYears = 0;

def okToPlot = GetLastDay() - numberOfDays <= GetDay() and GetLastYear() -...

def bull = DailyHigh > DailyHigh[1] and MarketHours;

plot scan = bull;
