Running MT5 backtest from Python application and then reading results

Hi everyone,

I’d like to be able to run the MT5 backtester from a python application and conduct a walk forward analysis.  I think it is possible to launch and run an optimisation using the command line Feature in MT5 but I’d like to be able to read the optimisation results not Python once the optimisation has finished. Is there a way of detecting when the optimisation has finished?

Any help is greatly appreciated. 

Many thanks,

Ed

Thanks fxsaber but you’ll have to elaborate a little more as my programming skills are more limited than yours. 

Many thanks,
