Scan for stocks furthest from 52w h/l

I found code in another thread

Note: that thread mentions the default scan under study > price performance > near_highs_lows. However that study shows values "within" not below or above.

So I changed the below line in the code:

price >= highest


to price <=highest

The objective is to find stocks that are AT LEAST a certain % below the 52w-high.

##Percent Away From High by XeoNoX via
## Change Percent_value to desired percent
## Example 3.0 means 3% 1.5 means 1.5%
## NOTE: 252 is standard agregration for days in a regular trading year according to thinkscript
## If you want 6 Months change the "PERIOD" to 126 and for a month change to 30, Week change to 7.
## Be sure to set the Agregation to Day
def price = close;
input number_of_days = 252;
input percent_value = 3.0;

def hi = high;
def lo = low;

plot scan = price <= highest(hi,number_of_days )* ((100 - percent_value) /100);
