Projector for a Futures trader , get rid of multi monitor setup

Hi Guys,
As a Futures trader, was looking to get more Profile charts on screen instead of a multi monitor setup but feel I wont fit more on the LG LF 1500 than on my current single 1080P monitor, windows set at small 100% (96 DPI) . Just wondering if anyone knows of a solution Would be so nice to fit everything on it

You need more resolution, not a bigger screen. Buy a 4k monitor.

Nah they are 1/5th that.

My eyes would hurt like crap staring at option prices on a projector in a dark room all day. Not for me.

Get a 4K TV...it'll be 4X larger than your monitor and 4X the resolution and they're available around $1000 and less for the cheaper brands at 55"-60" and less. No special lighting requirements, no special on/off requirements, no replacement lamps.

Ironically 4K flatscreens are pointless in a typical viewing room for video/television, but they can make excellent PC monitors.

Easy $25 DIY black (or any color) ALR paint +$40-$50sprayer screen mix smooth/clean and very easy to learn spraying with little/no mess.
Simple $25-40 DIY black/dark-grey ambient-light rejecting screen, grab two things from a local store..mix..roll..done.
Quick <$250 dedicated black-fabric theater room "A store that sells blinds can help your picture more than a store that sells projectors many times." -bud16415

Thats what I went and did earlier today Ftoast.
Have decided to wait for a 4k version available if/when they come out at a good price that is suitable for my needs. Great idea but bought an additional 50" 4k monitor for the time being .I have to look at this thing a few hours a day and don't want my eyes strained on a blurry low resolution . Best of all, I got it for $718 AUD including postage
