Ripple Faces Resistance at $0.52 Amid SEC Battle

Ripple’s token, XRP, has encountered resistance at the $0.52 level amidst an ongoing legal battle with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Despite five consecutive attempts, the altcoin has struggled to surpass this crucial threshold, with investors awaiting the court’s decision on the SEC’s proposed $2 billion fine and Ripple’s counterclaim of $10 million.

Despite the legal challenges, XRP has experienced a notable upswing, gaining 5% in the last 24 hours. Trading at $0.515859, with a market capitalization of $28.56 billion and a significant $1.41 billion 24-hour trading volume, the token continues to attract investor interest.


Technical analysis suggests a potential continuation of the bullish trend, supported by recent MACD crossover signals. However, traders should remain vigilant of resistance levels around $0.5310 and $0.5574, representing key Fibonacci retracement levels.
