Swing Trade Scanner for ThinkorSwim

I'm attempting to swing trade with breakouts. Can you, please, help to build a scanner for the following criteria (based on Stockbee's blog):
  • Price > $1
  • 4% breakout to new 20-day highs
  • Average daily traded volume > 100k shares
  • Range contraction above 10 and 20-day EMAs (exponential moving averages)
  • All major market averages are in a confirmed uptrend

Thanks in advance.

@burns56 Scanners are built in steps so you don't need one code with all the above. If you search these forums for each filter individually, you will find examples of each. And thus, be able to build your scanner one condition at a time.

Be sure to test it one condition at a time also, to make sure it is doing what you want it to be doing.
