LUNA/USD 4-hour chart: Price set to face resistance at record level of $88.90

The 4-hour chart for the LUNA/USD trade pair shows price facing resistance at the newly set record price of $88.90.

The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) curve has also shifted below its neutral zone, but stays well above the 0.00 mark, indicating an expected reversal in price.
