I am new so forgive me if I'll comeout stupid..

I use: ".... and close is less than 3% above the ma(200)..." and for some reason

Aren't stocks below the MA(200) also less than 3% above it? It's just giving you what you asked for.

You want stocks that are above the 200DMA, but no more than 3% above?

Fetcher[

set{upperlimit, MA(200) * 1.03}
show stocks where close is above MA(200)
and close is below upperlimit

add column MA(200)
add column upperlimit

stocks that are below the ma(200) are less than 3% above the ma(200)

If you want stocks that are above the ma(200) but no more than 3% above the ma, you could try something like

Fetcher[
close is above ma(200)
close is less than 3% above ma(200)
draw ma(200)
]
