Each column is a separate variable or piece of data, so all you need to do is to define a new user variable as the difference between them.

For example, I create two new user-defined variables (doesn't matter what they are so I'll just use RSI(2) and RSI(4)):

market is S&P 500
set{variable1, RSI(2)}
set{variable2, RSI(4)}
set{difference, variable1 - variable2}

add column variable1
add column variable2
add column difference

Now I could just forego the first two variables and make a single variable instead:

market is s&p 500
set{difference, RSI(2) - RSI(4)}
add column difference

sort on column 5 descending

Note here that I simply used the values for variable 1 and 2 instead of defining them first. Also, I added a new line "sort on column 5 descending". Any added columns start at #5 and are assigned numbers based on the order they are used in the filter.

Hope this helps.
