Yes. Profits are inversely proportional to the number of screens.

I think a lot of it is what markets you trade... and how much news affects your trading style.

If you're a pure chartist on one market you need only one screen...

Attached are 4 of my screens (one of the setups I just took a picture of now, the other setup isn't quite the same any more but you get the gist of it)- If you tried to fit this into 2 screens it would be counter productive as the information wouldn't be avaliable at a quick glance... and it has to be otherwise I would have to actually watch them all day
