I'm not all that good with using the backtest, but I noticed it only lets you select the DJ30 or SPX. How can I backtest for the pinks or OTCBB?

May have something to do with your subscription. I'm only guessing your referencing the benchmark symbol which you should have 4 options. Nasdaq, DJ30,SPX and other. If you want to backtest against the OTCBB as your benchmark, select other and enter OTCBB. If you dont care which benchmark symbol is used but just want to backtest for OTCBB stocks then you need the phrase "market is OTCBB" within the filter your backtesting.

I tried typing "OTCBB" in the "Other" box, but it keeps telling me it's invalid.

I get the same now too. It was supported before, I used either OTC or OTCBB as the benchmark before and got results. Maybe try an individual otc stock perhaps? I have since deleted the backtest results, but I do remember using the OTCBB as the benchmark and it worked. It may be you need market is otcbb in the actual filter line somewhere, I am not sure about. email support and they should be able to clear up.
