Though the coin tried to rebound in the midweek, a massive resistance at $0.52 became a barrier on its path. After testing the resistance for multiple times, the coin could not make a way through it and ultimately made a downward move. After reaching $0.45 – 16-week low value for XRP – the coin rebounded with aggressive force and has touched $0.55. Though it faced resistance at $0.49, support at $0.48 pushed it through.
