What exactly do you mean by "closed within average daily range"?

By definition, a stock ALWAYS closes within its daily range.

Do you mean today's range is less than the average daily range?

Can you provide an example of a stock that meets this criteria?

How can I make a filter that will pick stocks that closed within the average daily volatility above the MA(20)? (i.e. The close is within the distance from 0 to the volatility or that stock above the MA(20), so if the trading range of a stock was \$1, I would want it chosen only if the close was within \$1 from the MA(20)) I tried:
Show stocks where close was within average daily range aboveMA(20)
It didn't work?

The average daily range is a variable that has a value. (i.e. XYZ may have an average daily range of \$1.32) I would like to know if the close of that stock was between the MA(20) and the MA(20)+ \$1.32.

This is what I came up with:
set{UpperLimit, average true range(35) + ma(35)}
close above ma(35)
close below UpperLimit
