Store And Reuse Variable Data

I have one script that runs during premarket that calculates all stocks with average daily trading range over x days greater than lets say $2 and assign to variable AverageDR. Then I save the results to watchlist, and call it WL1. When market opens, I run second script against watchlist WL1 for stocks below the average day range, however, to do this I have to redo calculation for average day range that was done in script 1 and now include IF condition. My question is would it be possible to store results from script 1 (AverageDR) and reference this data in IF condition without having to re-run calculation?

Thanks

Assuming that I interpreted this right, something like this should work. Just run it custom study against the daily aggregation, and is true..

Ruby:
input Length = 50;
input MinRange = 2;
def Range = high - low;
def RangeAverage = Average(Range, Length);
plot scan = RangeAverage > MinRange and Range < RangeAverage;
