Hello I was wondering if someone can help me out. I trade on the 5min chart and I'm looking for a scan for intraday highs and lows. I would prefer to have it set where it is APPROACHING/ NEARING the highs and lows.

I Would appreciate it a lot !
 
Solution
@kmalhi26 Try close > .95 * high for stocks within 5% of the high, and close < 1.05 * low for stocks within 5% of the lows. Set your scan aggregation to Daily.
You can adjust the percentages as you like to get it closer or farther away from the highs or lows.

My scan brings back over 4000 results, is this normal? I was thinking maybe a few 100 at most. Thanks for helping out regardless though !

@kmalhi26 You're welcome! It does depend what area of the market you are scanning as well as what other filters you have.
Maybe adjust the scans to find stocks closer to the highs or lows, i.e., instead of scanning for stocks within .95 (95%) of the highs, try changing it to .9725 - that will get stocks within 2.5% of the high of the day.

Do we have any watchlist script when price is approaching the highs/ lows..
Like candlestick high is with in .20 cents of breaking the highs/ lows would be great.
