Help with scanner

I am trying to program a scanner but I am struggling to think what logic I could input and give me the setups I want.

Basically, what I want is a stock that has been on a run and then has pulled back to a certain MA.

seems simple, but its been hard filtering thru all the BS that my scanner brings up currently. Right now the logic I have coded is essentially 'current low is lower or equal to MA and prior days low is higher than current low.'

Anyone have any ideas on what logic could bring better results for what I want?

You look for a stock that has made a run and then retraced to a moving average.

Select a lookback period N, for example N = 20.

(1) "Made a run":

The stock must have made a new high during the last 20 days. Select the NewHigh/NewLow indicator, set it to a period of 20 and check the condition for the last 20 days. Maybe you need to modify the indicator in such a way that it comes with a DataSeries which holds the value 1, if the aggregate conditioin is true, and which holds the value 0 otherwise.

(2) "Pull back to the MA":

You only want to get alerted for the first bar that touches the MA. Therefore you need to look out for a bar with

-> the low smaller or equal to the current value of the MA
-> the low of the prior bar greater than the prior value of the MA (not higher than the current low!)
