John Carter's close below 21 day high

Im new to the TOS platform and ThinkScript. I come over from Tradstation and Easylanguage.
I wonder if anyone can help me properly code this study.
Im trying to duplicate John Carters close below the 21 day high study.
The english for this would be to mark the bar that closes below the low of the highest high bar of the last 21 days.
Ive tried to find examples of simular studies to work off of to no avail.
Any help would be appreciated.
Here is what I tried to do so far.

declare upper;

def hiday = Highest(high, 21);

plot sigday = ( hiday[1] and close < low[1]) or ( hiday[2] and close < low[2]) ;



As written, the code produces arrows on days closing below
any higher day not just the 21 day high.

John Carter 21-day High

Hello, I purchased this indicator from John Carter, and it works great in both TradeStation and NinjaTrader; however, it will not give any signals in Bloodhound; any ideas? I'd like to pay someone to code it for me, unless it already exists somewhere for free! Thanks very much!
