I came up with the following filter but it's not working...
set{x,1 year high  close}
set{y,x/ 1 year high}
set{z,y*100}
show stocks where z is less than 15
Can anybody help?

khan,
If you want to do the same thing without using the "set" syntax you could write the filter this way:
The problem I have with this particular technique is 15% seems to have a different meaning based on the magnitude of the price.
A solution to the problem might look something like the filter below. It tries to find stocks where the price is within 15% of the top (85%) of the 52 week high/low range. It is calculated similar to Bollinger %B but using the yearly high/low close values as the input.
Hope this helps...
