Ive recently created my multimonitor setup myself up and running in half the costs.

4 27" screen ,
1TB HDD,
ATiFirePro 2560(Silent Graphics card),
Windows 7,
8GB RAM,
Samsung DVD,
Corsair Case

Its upgradable to 8 screens. My costliest part was 27" screens which cost 200 a piece if you go cheaper like 24" or 22" which look good in 1980*1080 resolution it will be way cheaper.

Ill post the details on http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/ the free website i used to create it.

You just need to buy the parts from Amazon, Scan, Aria, PC World the parts and the installation its fairly easy. Its on UTube

Just one details dont go for retail graphics card since the fan will make lot of noise go with ATI FirePro from AMD or NVS from NVedia They can drive 4 screens each card and are 0 DB. They are silent ones for financial work with 3 years warranty.

You just need to order the parts right. Let me know if interested.

They are all under the illusion that once they have their 8 screen setup everything will fall into place and they will stop losing.

8 screens won't stop anyone losing, but it will provide eight times more information than one screen. As trading is all about being logical, that should be fairly obvious.

8x times more information to make you 8x times more confused. Normally retail traders don't have the resources, skills or knowledge to analyse such flow of information on a constant basis. If you do I congratulate you and I am very happy for you, but in the meantime I found difficult to understand why you are not at a trading desk of a firm investing other people money.

4x monitors is more than enough for a retail trader. Although in my point of view 2x are all you need, bearing in mind the explanation above.

I have 6 monitors - as a day trader I need a lot of information, which markets are moving, correlation and support and resistance in several time frames.

It probably took me a good six to eight months to become adept at reading and responding to all that additional information, but I wouldn't trade with less now that I have what I consider to be an advantage.

If you are successful trading from an old laptop or trading from 16 screens - each to their own, no need for derisory comments.

I'm 50 years old, have been trading full time for 10 years - I'm siting here in a pair of shorts and a vest, my journey to work took me about 30 seconds - why would I want to trade for a firm when I'm perfectly happy here.

Agreed. 8x will bring more confusion and anxiety, than understanding and control.

I also agree, you have to find your limits and if the additional information provided by additional screens is too much and causes you anxiety, you have found your limitations and one or two screens are definitely right for you.
