Simple:
C >= AVGC200 * 1.4

Exponential:
C >= XAVGC200 * 1.4

It's a pretty large percentage to be above a Moving Average, so neither will return many results. You may wish to review the following:

In this particular case, yes. It really depends on what you are doing.

1 * something = 100% of that same something

You were looking for something 40% above something, or 140% of something, so 1.4 was the number to use.
