XRP price has met with selling pressure each time the bulls tried to move past the $0.48 price level. XRP declined by almost 1% over the last 24 hours.
Over the past week, the altcoin depreciated more than 6%. The bulls could be back on the chart if the coin breaks past its immediate resistance level.

If buyers continue to remain low, a fall to $0.40 is just a matter of the next trading sessions. Once the coin pierces below the $0.40 mark, it could also trade at $0.38. XRP has made a significant recovery since last month, but buying strength has remained inconsistent, causing the coin to falter. XRP price is trading almost 87% lower than its all-time high of 2018.
