I am not savvy with thinkscript and need some help. Ideally the scan would incorporate the following:

1- Be able to confine within a % distance above and below the 20 EMA. Example, 2% above or below.
2- Preferably be able to create both a bullish momentum and bearish momentum.

The goal here is to find pullbacks/retracements to the 20 ema.

3- Wishful would be nice to find stocks at or near 52 week highs/lows meeting the above criteria.

Any help would be greatly appreciated:

Stock charts has one that does does the first 2 requirements, but I do not know how to convert it to thinkscript

[type = stock]
and [close >= SMA(20,close)*0.96]
and [close <= SMA(20,close)*1.04]
