Your forumla appears to make sense and be compatible with the marketguide formula, but in comparing the results between TC2000 and multexinvestor I see some discrepencies.

Here's the formula I use on http://www.multexinvestor.com/ with data updated as of Friday June 13th.
01 Select Company List US Companies
02 {Price}>5
03 {MktCap}>100
04 {Price}>.9*{PriceH}
05 {Vol10DAvg}>.05*{Vol3MAvg}
06 {Pr52W%Chg}>50
07 {Pr4W%Chg}>0

Then sorting by 4 week change
Here are the stocks I get:

On TC2000 - similar.. but not quite -
I get
2. HEPH - so far so good
3. POZN - ? What happened to XING? Different captilization.
5. DNA

So.. I drilled down on some of the criteria to see why there are differences.

XING has a capitalization of 78 on TC2000, (drops of the list).. but
a capitalization of 173.15 on multex. Any idea why?
That explains 1-4.

DSCO is actually #6 on multex rather than #4. So why is there PVIS?
PVIS doesn't show up at all on TC2000.
It looks like PVIS is really PVIS.OB according to yahoo, and looks like an over the counter stock. So what to do about that? TC2000 doesn't list OTC stocks. Are they a vital part of new high screamers?

So there are some differences, but capitalization? How can there be such disagreement about that?
