Can the backtest on SF be set up to only buy a stock if it hits a limit open?

Say a stock is selected by a filter but I only want to buy it if it drops .5% below the open- How would I do this?

in the entry price box you can use a set formula I think this will work, if not something similar should get you there

set{x, open - 0.15}
entry price is x

be sure to check the box "do not enter if target price is not met.......etc"
