floor leveling compond

Here is the situation. I leveled out or attempted to level out my cottage slab.
I used 2x4s as sleepers with 3/4 ply.
The individual are mostly level however I discovered I should have use a 7ft level instead of a 4. As the entire floor has a gradual slope

Can I correct this with floor leveling compound? I want to install hardwood.
I am guessing not... I'd figure maybe some felt paper and then pour... still no?

leveling compound will work fine. But if there are no dips and bumps there is no need to address a flat out of level floor in order to install hardwood flooring.
