A position left open over the weekend

I noticed that a position between Yen and Pounds was left open. It was midnight, both the London and Tokyo market were closed. This position will be left open for the weekend, since it is not possible to close it: the market is closed. (Makes sense: who will buy the currency?)

Now there is a 14 pip gain, that means 1,31 euro, what will happen on monday? Usually, in the demo account that I managed for about two months, I saw that on monday morning the market is unstable, goes up and down like on a rollercoaster, not very funny.

Moreover, has been invested a microlot, that means 1000 pounds, but using a 100:1 leverage. That means that the broker used 10 pounds to buy 1000 pounds. To keep,  the position on hold for two weeks, the broker will pretend some commission?

I’ll discover that on monday.
