3. Save the keys "ID" and "Secret"

After the trader has confirmed the creation of the API, a window will appear containing the data for the "ID" and "Secret" keys.
Be sure to save the "Secret" option, as it will not be available after you close the window. The "ID" key will always be available in your personal account.
