I continuously make the same mistakes over and over and over. The attached chart shows a buy in ES off 2min. chart.. Trend is heading UP (on this timeframe) BUT:: What I failed to see was the Trendline I have annotated. (wasn't annotated at time of trade) and my plan says to not take a long when a TL is present after coming off of a lower swing low like this. but for some reason I don't see it or notice it in the heat of battle. Until after the trade Is this my subconscious doing things to hurt my trading or just stupidity and laziness for not drawing the line as it develops?? Edit: One thing I also wanted to point out was that I've become a breakeven trader lately.. after years of losing.. and everytime I get my account to a certain level.. I give it all right back with trades like the one attached. this has been an recurring theme for about a year now.
