I don't know that Monday and Friday are different but I have noticed recently that before and after the US opening does seem to make a difference.

Safer imho to close all positions come Friday night.

I seem to do nearly 90% of my week's trading on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Friday afternoons aren't worthwhile at all, for me, and I don't like Monday mornings much, either.

I trade forex only and never leave positions open overnight.

I think the real answer to your question (first part) is it depends on the method you use and how often it produces trades. I have used methods before that, like alexaherself, only worked well Tuesday to Thursday. These days I trade Monday to Friday and only see a difference on days that have red news (I trade fx). What really underpins this is market conditions which can often be undecided.

As for your second question. I have 2 accounts that I use to trade. The first is my every day account and the other is for longer term trades. On the later I can hold positions open for weeks on occasion but more common is about a week and at least half of them is held over weekends. In this account I make sure I don't trade a currency that has false control mechanisms in place that could nail me over a weekend. I also don't trade currencies on this account that are correlated with commodities as they too can have unpredictable outcomes.

It's generally a long road to trading success.
Good luck and hang in there -- you'll need it, before giving up.
