Guys I'm holding this long is there any chances to go down today really loosing lot even GBPAUD please advise me

GBPAUD is the winner of the day, more than 400 pips cause of GBPUSD gain more than %1 and AUDUSD loss more than %1, it is trend now, AUS losing power cause of possible rate cut and GBP is manupulating by bank cause of brexit situation. So in these levels better to just watch the market or to hedge current positions

@Black Eagle - This is an untrustworthy pair for day to day trades until after Brexit. Still a lot of volatility though.
