I moved from StreetSmart edge with Schwab to TOS and i cannot find this scan option in thinkorswim which Edge had.

Any help is appreciated.

here are two options you have. one option is using the built in scan as shown in the screenshot attached which scans for 200,000 volume minimum and trading near 1% of current day high .


option#2 is you can use the thinkscript code below to scan for 200,000 volume minimum and trading near within 15 cents of the current day high . (MAKE SURE YOU SET THE AGGREGATION PERIOD TO "D" for DAY):

Code:
def vol = Volume>200000;
def high_dif = high-close;
plot scan = high_dif<=.15;

just as a friendly tip, you might also want to check out the stock (built in) "high low graph" column which might help you as well, especially if you sort by it. i have a feeling you may like it if you utilize it properly.
you can find more about it on this thread
