Unfortunately, the standard deviation measure may not be exactly what you are looking for. The standard deviation meaure currently indicates how many price points make up a single standard deviation. Additionally, the standard deviation measure only accesses up to the last 100 days (we will look to increase that value.)

Given the restrictions above, below is an example filter that may do what you are looking for:

close minus ma(100) is above the standard deviation(100) multiplied by 3
and draw ma(100)

Hopefully the above helps.
