These settings are required as the keyboard will then be able to open and close trades, not stop when you switch between timeframes, switch accounts or profiles.
Note: if you only have one account and one profile then there is no need to select these two boxes.

The Keyboard requires DLL permissions to capture key press events.

We also require a valid username and password so allow WebRequest and add the URL

Some brokers have their own naming for currency pairs in the example here there two GBPUSD options:

GBPUSD. and GBPUSD, the first one has a . (dot) at the end this is actual the pair that my broker has setup for me to trade.

Please check that your market watch window is showing the same currency pairs in the Imperium Setup and Configuration popup window. Otherwise the keyboard will open the wrong pair.

Simply click on the pair and select the correct one.
